‘Future Nostalgia’ is arriving a week sooner than planned and her upcoming UK/European tour is postponed.
Dua Lipa said that the global chaos caused by the covid-19 pandemic played a part in the change. She has moved forward the release of her new album ‘Future Nostalgia’ to this Friday March 27.
The album was initially scheduled for April 3, but the singer revealed the news during an emotional Instagram Live session this afternoon, which you can watch below.
Speaking through tears, she said: “What I wanted to talk about is my album and every time I talk about my album, I get quite emotional and I feel like I have been welling up a little bit, just a lot over the past couple of weeks just because of the uncertainty over everything.”
After a pause she continued: “I really didn’t want to do this.”
“I hope the album brings you some happiness,” she said, “and I hope it makes you smile, and I hope it makes you dance. I hope I make you proud.”
Earlier this week, Dua confirmed that her next single from the album will be called ‘Break My Heart’. The song was due to arrive on Friday, but has now been pushed forward to Tomorrow.
Dua also opened up about how her new song ‘Boys Will Be Boys’ raises the issue of sexual harassment head-on.
She also revealed the news that her upcoming UK and European arena tour has been postponed in wake of the continued crisis. “New UK and Europe tour dates announced tomorrow 10AM GMT + rest of world dates coming ASAP,” she added on Instagram.
The new set of news comes after Lipa joined BROCKHAMPTON recently for a remix of their single ‘Sugar’.
Meanwhile, Lipa has motivated fans to stay at home during the coronavirus outbreak by posting lyrics from ‘Don’t Start Now’.
