Dua Lipa Says Third Album is Her Most Mature So Far
Dua Lipa has revealded that she's not been "afraid to talk about things" on her "grown-up" third album.
In a new interview speaking to Vogue as part of their Vogue's 73 Questions series (watch below), whilst on her Future Nostalgia tour, June/July cover star Lipa chatted about dancing, yoga, astrology, and Crocs.
The British superstar has so far completed 23 of 109 stops on her tour. The punishing schedule, which kicked off in February and is set to end in November, travels across North America, South America, Oceania, and Europe.
During the interview, the "Levitating" hitmaker, 26, said her upcoming follow-up to 2020's Future Nostalgia is her most mature record to date, and she doesn't hold back when speaking up on what matters to her.
"I've definitely grown up. Overall, whether it's sonically or in terms of the themes, I've matured', she admitted.
"It's like I'm coming into my power and not afraid to talk about things.
"It's about understanding what I want."
In March, the Grammy winner teased that the record was "50 per cent done". She said she was happy with the progress she's made and feels "very excited" about some of the songs she's already recorded for the LP. Speaking to Sir Elton John on her 'Service 95' podcast, she said: "It's starting to feel good.
"It's starting to take shape. I’m very excited about some of the new songs so it's always exciting to look forward towards something."
Lipa's update came just two months after she said her third album was "still in baby form" and she was "in no rush" to debut new material. She admitted, though, that she had a firm "vision" for the record and had already chosen a title.
"It has a vision. It has a name, I think — for now. It's just been fun experimenting. I'm always going to make pop music, but it has its own unique sound, which is exciting and something that feels like a movement from Future Nostalgia.
"In all honesty, it's probably not what my fans want to hear – but I'm in no rush to release a new album."
