Dua Lipa Shares Video for New Single ‘Illusion’

    Dua Lipa has shared a new single from her third album, Radical Optimism. Following ‘Houdini’ and ‘Training Season’, ‘Illusion’ is accompanied by a Tanu Muino-directed music video shot at the Piscina Municipal de Montjuïc in Barcelona. Lipa co-wrote the track with Caroline Ailin, Danny L Harle, Tobias Jesso Jr., and Kevin Parker, and Harle and Parker co-produced it. Watch and listen below.

    “‘Illusion’ was the first song Caroline, Danny, Tobias, Kevin and I worked on together, and it really broke the ice for the record,” Lipa said in a press release. “It’s about knowing what you’re getting yourself into, but staying for the hell of it. The joke’s on them, it’s the fun of playing someone at their own game because ultimately you won’t fall for an illusion.”

    Radical Optimism, the follow-up to 2020’s Future Nostalgia, arrives on May 3.
