LONDON (CelebrityAccess) – Dua Lipa has revealed the name of her highly anticipated forthcoming album, Future Nostalgia due for release in 2020. The singer has also announced a massive European Arena Tour, which is slated to kick off in Madrid on April 26th, 2020.
The tour will make stops in 22 cities across Europe and the UK before wrapping up in Dublin on June 19th.
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.”
Tickets for the tour go on sale Friday 6th December at 9.00am local time, excluding Spain who will be on sale on Thursday, 5th December at 9.00am local time. A charitable donation will be added to all tickets and proceeds will go to Unicef and Sunny Hill Foundation.
