Music news

Kevin Parker collaborates as producer and singer on the melody.

A few months after the success received with his song “Dance The Night” for the film’s soundtrack Barbie (2023), Dua Lipa surprised his fans with the announcement of new music and an unreleased single will arrive this Thursday, November 9 at 5:00 p.m. to digital platforms. “Houdini” is the next release from the British singer, but it is just a preview of what her next album will be.

One of the surprises in this premiere is the participation of Kevin Parker, frontman of tame Impalawho also collaborated on the soundtrack of the film Greta Gerwig. On this occasion the musician serves as producer of the song, in addition to playing bass and adding backing vocals to the melody.

Dua Lipa shared a preview of single on her YouTube channel and gave her fans the clue that a new era is coming in her discography, because in addition to changing her look, she also deleted all her posts on Instagram. The singer-songwriter revealed that her album would be released in 2024 and it is believed that the singer of “Elephant” will have an important role in the material, but more details about it have not yet been revealed.

The album is different. It’s still pop but it’s different sonically and has more of a lyrical theme. If I revealed the title, it would all make sense; but I think it is too early for that,” she shared in an interview with Variety in 2022.
