Dua Lipa is busy working on her new album alongside Mark Ronson – Exclusive

The 27-year-old singer snuck into a recording studio in New York City earlier this month to work on her eagerly-awaited third album.

And Dua – who released her last album, ‘Future Nostalgia’, in 2020 – was joined in the studio by the acclaimed record producer.

Ronson has worked with a host of big-name artists over the years and if often photographed on the red carpet, including the likes of Amy Winehouse, Adele, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus and Bruno Mars.

Whats more, he previously joined forces with Dua to record ‘Electricity’, the hit single that also featured Diplo.

The London-born star admitted to feeling “even more liberated” at this stage of her career.

She shared: “As I’m writing my new album, I feel even more liberated in a completely different way. And even more in control than I thought.”

Dua Lipa teases ‘very different’ new album

MarkMeets.com can exclusively reveal that Dua is “Halfway done” with her third album but things have since taken a new direction.

She said: ” Well when I was speaking to Elton I really felt like I was halfway done. But it’s taken a complete turn as I’ve carried on working, and I really feel now that it’s starting to sound cohesive. So I’m going to keep writing in the early months of the new year and see where that takes me. The album is different — it’s still pop but it’s different sonically, and there’s more of a lyrical theme.”

However, the ‘Cold Heart’ hitmaker remained coy about giving any details away about the upcoming album and explained that even revealing the title would spoil the surprise.

“If I told you the title, everything would make sense — but I think we’ll just have to wait!”

Meanwhile, the ‘Break My Heart’ songstress the World Cup offers a “really unique opportunity to hold Qatar to account” and was unhappy when rumours spread she was set to perform at the opening ceremony for the soccer tournament because the event “really goes against [her] beliefs” due to the Gulf state’s human rights policies.

She said: “The World Cup is a really unique opportunity to hold Qatar to account.

“They made pledges on human rights when they signed the deal for the World Cup thathave not been satisfactorily met on migrant workers’ rights, women’s rights, LGBTQ rights and freedom of expression — what kind of message does it send if these pledges mean nothing?

“I really have nothing against Qatar, and I hope one day I will get the chance to go there.

“But I didn’t like being amongst speculation that I was going to perform for something that really goes against my beliefs.”

Earlier this year, Dua gave fans an insight into what they can expect from her new album.

Dua revealed that she now feels more confident than ever before.

The singer thinks that her new-found confidence is reflected in her music.

She said: “As an artist, as you evolve and you practise your craft – the more you spend time really honing things – the more comfortable and confident you are. And that’s how I felt with ‘Future Nostalgia’.”

The chart-topping star likened the feeling of performing in front of thousands of fans to being “invincible”.

She said: “I get to see it take on a whole new lease on life. Once I’ve sung the first line of the first song, there’s a feeling of almost being invincible, of joining forces with the music … and just having fun.”

The 3rd Studio Album (also known by fans as “DL3”) is the upcoming third major label record by Dua Lipa. It’s expected to be released in 2023 by Warner Records.
