Dua Lipa has launched into her latest era with her much-anticipated new single, Houdini.
Co-written by the singer with Caroline Ailin, Danny L. Harle , Tobias Jesso Jr. and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker – with Parker and Hale serving as producers – the track offers the first taste of her third studio LP.
“Houdini embodies that 4am feeling when the night is coming to a close and you’re a bit sweaty, but you just don’t want the party to end,” says Dua in a press release.
“This track represents the most light and freeing parts of my singledom. Houdini is very tongue in cheek, exploring the idea of whether someone is really worth my while or if I’ll ghost them in the end.”
She adds: “You never know where something may take you, that’s the beauty of being open to whatever life throws your way. I’m looking forward to sharing that feeling of defiant bliss with my fans.”
The team behind the track are key collaborators on the superstar’s yet-to-be-announced album, which she says was “written in those joyous moments of absolute chaos and how I moved through the world with lightness and optimism of whatever the outcome may be”
Alongside the single, a music video – directed by Manu Cossu with cinematographer André Chemetoff – sees Dua revising her choreography under fluorescent lights in a dance hall.
