Dua Lipa has released her new song ‘Houdini’. The track was produced by Danny L Harle and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, who also co-wrote it along with Caroline Ailin and Tobias Jesso Jr. Check it out below, alongside a video directed by Manu Cossu with cinematographer André Chemetoff.
“This track represents the most light and freeing parts of my singledom,” Lipa said in a statement. “’Houdini’ is very tongue in cheek, exploring the idea of whether someone is really worth my while or if I’ll ghost them in the end. You never know where something may take you, that’s the beauty of being open to whatever life throws your way. I’m looking forward to sharing that feeling of defiant bliss with my fans.”
Ailin, Harle, Jesso Jr., and Parker are described in a press release as “core collaborators” of a forthcoming project, which marks the beginning of a new chapter following 2020’s Future Nostalgia. “A lot of this album was written in those joyous moments of absolute chaos and how I moved through the world with lightness and optimism of whatever the outcome may be,” Lipa commented.
