After months of talk about it, Dua Lipa is finally getting the ball rolling down the hill towards her second album release with new single ‘Don’t Start Now’. To reiterate though, she is starting. Now. Well, next Friday, when this record goes live.

“I chose to put this song out first so I could close one chapter of my life and start another”, she says. “Into a new era with a new sound! It’s about moving on and not allowing anyone to get in the way of that. It also felt like a natural first song choice as I made it with the brilliant same crew I made ‘New Rules’ with”.

Earlier this year, Dua Lipa said that her second album would be cheerier than her first, adding: “For the first record all I could do really was a lot of dance-crying. It was so much easier for me to write things that made me unhappy because they were things that stuck in my mind the longest. [My new music is] like a dancercise class – it’s just fun”.

So, get the fun started now. Well, next week.
