Dua Lipa has announced a bunch of tour dates, and the title of her new album

Dua Lipa has revealed the title of her new album, and a whole European tour for 2020.

Her second full-length will be called 'Future Nostalgia', and is set to arrive next year. We've already heard the first track from it - the bangertastic 'Don't Start Now'.

Speaking about ‘Future Nostalgia’ Dua explains “What I wanted to do with this album was to break out of my comfort zone and challenge myself to make music that felt like it could sit alongside some of my favourite classic pop songs, whilst still feeling fresh and uniquely mine. I was inspired by so many artists on the new record from Gwen Stefani to Madonna to Moloko to Blondie and Outkast, to name just a few.

“Because of the time that I’d spent on the road touring with my band I wanted ‘Future Nostalgia’ to have a lot more of a live element, but mixed together with modern electronic production. My sound has naturally matured a bit as I’ve grown up but I wanted to keep the same pop sensibility as I had on the first record. I remember that I was on my way to a radio show in Las Vegas thinking about the direction for this new record and I realised that what I wanted to make was something that felt nostalgic but had something fresh and futuristic about it too.”

So there we go.

The 'Future Nostalgia 2020 European Arena Tour', as everyone will doubtless be calling it, kicks off in Madrid on 26th April, and visits 22 cities across Europe and the UK, finishing up in Dublin on 19th June.

Tickets go on sale at 9am this Friday 6th December, apart from Spain who get to go a day earlier. A charity donation will be added to all tickets with proceeds going to Unicef and Sunny Hill Foundation.
