It will take only three minutes for Dua Lipa to seduce you.
The British-Albanian superstar dropped her new single, “Houdini,” Thursday, a flirty, dance-y collision of psychedelic pop and a groove that goes straight to your veins.
The song is the first from her anticipated third album, due in 2024, and one that she notes in a release “embodies that 4 a.m. feeling when the night is coming to a close and you’re a bit sweaty, but you don’t want the party to end.”
Co-written and co-produced by Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, among others, “Houdini” is a harbinger of what to expect on Lipa’s upcoming album, which she says was “written in those joyous moments of absolute chaos.”

Lipa, 28, playfully demands in the lyrics, “Prove you’ve got the right to please me,” while also vowing, “catch me or I’ll go Houdini” over swirling textures. A cascading midsong synth breakdown is signature Parker before “Houdini” dovetails into Daft Punk-like whirs of keyboards.
“You never know where something may take you; that’s the beauty of being open to whatever life throws your way,” Lipa says of the song.
The three-time Grammy winner has hardly been idle since the 2020 release of her smash “Future Nostalgia” album and ensuing tour.
Along with the hits generated from the worldwide breakthrough, including “Levitating,” “Physical” and “Break My Heart,” Lipa scored a No. 1 hit with Elton John in 2021 with “Cold Heart (Pnau Remix)” and another charttopper this summer with “Dance the Night Away,” from the star-packed “Barbie The Album” soundtrack.
She’s also expanded her other interests with curated recommendations lists on her Service95 platform, an accompanying podcast, “Dua Lipa: At Your Service,” and the Service95 Book Club.
Of her upcoming next music venture, Lipa says she’s looking forward to sharing her “feeling of defiant bliss” with fans.
