Dua Lipa is back! Houdini is the new single that introduces the beginning of a new chapter after his hugely successful 2020 album, Future Nostalgia.
“Houdini” kicks off the narrative thread that winds through Dua’s next project, who said:
Houdini embodies that 4am feeling, when the night is almost over and you’re sweaty, but you don’t want the party to end.”
This song represents the lighter and more liberating parts of my single life,” says Dua. “Houdini” is very ironic, you wonder if someone is really worth considering or if, in the end, you will regret it. You never know where something will take you, that’s the beauty of being open to whatever life throws at you. I can’t wait to share this feeling with my fans.”
The official music video, directed by Manu Cossu with cinematographer André Chemetoff, finds Dua post-rehearsal in a ballroom, reviewing her choreography under fluorescent lights. The lights reflect in the room’s mirrors, creating an optical illusion as the energy begins to build
“Houdini” was written by Dua Lipa, together with Caroline Ailin, Danny L. Harle, Tobias Jesso Jr. and Kevin Parker of Tame Impala, a group that collaborated significantly on the project, and was produced by Parker and Harle.
A lot of this album was written in those joyful moments of absolute chaos and how I moved through the world with ease and optimism without worrying about the outcome,” says Dua.
