Dua Lipa's 'creating a new world' around Future Nostalgia

Speaking to Miley Cyrus on her Instagram series "Bright Minded", Dua admitted: "It is a very confusing and sometimes unsettling time that we are in at the moment only because I guess for all of us nobody really knows how long this is going to last". The 24-year-old delivered the best song of 2019 with "Don't Start Now" and then kept her foot on the gas in 2020 with the equally fantastic "Physical". Simply forward of her forthcoming album, the English artist dropped a colourful music video punctuated with mind-bending results and LED-lit units.

The '80s-inspired bop samples the 1987 hit "Need You Tonight" by INXS. It's always risky to tinker with the classics, but this works perfectly with the hitmaker's retro-futuristic sound. "But listen to that first part: "I would have stayed at home" (to prevent the spread of coronavirus) "'cause I was doing better alone" (by not contracting COVID-19).

"I wasn't afraid to just go in and experiment and try new things". However don't let the bopping choreography and classic Euro-pop beat idiot you: This music is concerning the all-consuming anxiousness that comes with new love, the concern that the potential heartbreak could possibly be too crushing for even the best set of "New Rules".

"I hope this will make you smile and I hope it will make you dance..." - said the singer.

The new album, Future nostalgia, still have four special editions: vinyl neon pink, disc with cover art; CD; metallic cassette and a deluxe box with vinyl, music book, poster and a letter signed by the singer.

The star thanked those involved in the video on Twitter Thursday, writing, "BREAK MY HEART VIDEO IS YOURZ TO KEEP".
