Dua Lipa has wiped her Instagram profile… which is either an indication of new music on the horizon, or she's applying for a new job and is worried about what the HR team might find in her history. pic.twitter.com/X6GKG0CUCy

To add more confirmation, if you recall, the singer, whose last song came in 2020’s Future Nostalgia, shared details of the album in a new profile interview with the New York Times Magazine. As she confirmed that fans can expect the release of her next album in 2024, as well as sharing the briefest of ideas about what the record will entail. “Let’s get out of the way: Dua Lipa is finishing her third album. It’s due for release in 2024 and, despite the trend of musicians announcing and delaying records for years, Lipa will almost certainly meet her deadline,” the article stated.
As for the musical direction of Lipa’s latest offering, she is experimenting with “1970s-era psychedelia.” Further mentioning, “The next record will still be pop, she says, lest her ‘fans have a meltdown’,” it stated. “She doesn’t want to ‘alienate’ them, although she’s developing a new sound that may be informed less by the house and disco beats beneath songs like ‘Physical’ and ‘Hallucinate’ than by 1970s-era psychedelia.” Lipa also went on to claim that the record will be “more personal” but refused to confirm any rumor that she is working with Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker on it. “I don’t know what you’re talking about,” she told the publication when asked about this rumor.
Moreover, Mark Ronson also said that he had heard Lipa’s third untitled album and hailed it as “incredible.”
Speaking to Vulture, Ronson discussed Dua Lipa’s Barbie soundtrack contribution, ‘Dance The Night,’ and upcoming music from the singer. Discussing the music video and how it featured a disco ball smashing, he added: “I think that’s why there’s the disco ball that smashes in the video, right? This feels like her triumphant stomp on that era of her music into whatever she does next.” During an interview with Vogue that May, Lipa also explained, “I’ve definitely grown up. Overall, whether it’s sonically or in terms of the themes, I’ve matured,” she continued. “It’s like I’m coming into my power and not afraid to talk about things. It’s about understanding what I want.”
At last, after looking at these statements, it’s pretty much clear to say that whatever direction Lipa chooses to take, one thing is for certain: she is poised to once again captivate audiences worldwide with her unique talent and unparalleled artistry, which we can’t wait to see! With her powerful vocals and infectious energy, she has proven time and time again that she is a force to be reckoned with in the music industry.
From her breakout hits like “New Rules” to her collaborations with renowned artists, Lipa has consistently pushed boundaries and delivered chart-topping hits. As she embarks on the next phase of her career, there is no doubt that she will continue to leave an indelible mark on the global music scene, leaving fans wanting more!
