Dua Lipa's new single "Houdini" has finally arrived! O Thursday evening (November 9th), after weeks of teasing fans, the superstar shared the first single from her next album as well as the music video, which features the singer showing off her dance moves in a large rehearsal space.

While Dua has yet to share any other details on the follow-up to her last album Future Nostalgia, she took to Instagram to share some photos of herself working in the studio. The photo series confirmed a long-standing rumor that Tame Impala's Kevin Parker is a producer on her forthcoming album— his influence is definitely all over the new single. Danny L Harle has also been confirmed as a producer on "Houdini" and presumably the rest of the album.

Fans have been eagerly awaiting the start of Dua's new musical era since she confirmed in an interview that her third studio album will be released sometime in 2024. Lipa also shared that this record will have a different sound although she's committed to keeping it pop, "lest her 'fans have a meltdown,'' she was quoted saying in the story. She also added that she doesn't want to "alienate" her fans but her new sound will see her move away from disco and embrace the sounds of "1970s-era psychedelia."

Since launching her career in 2013, the English-Albanian singer has released two studio albums: Dua Lipa in 2017 and Future Nostalgia in 2020.
