Rising UK music artist Dua Lipa will release her highly anticipated debut album on February 10, 2017. Alongside the announcement, Dua has just released her brand new single, ‘Blow Your Mind (Mwah)’, which had its debut at the top spot on the New Music Friday playlist on Spotify.
Recently Dua delivered searing performances at Lollapalooza that had Fuse proclaiming she "mastered her first-ever Lollapalooza performance with a seductive charm" and SPIN observing "she is ready for the main stage." Earlier this year Dua performed at SXSW, with NYLON proclaiming, "There’s no denying the future for Dua Lipa is bright. Prepare to be blinded by it." She then went on to play to her biggest crowds to date at Glastonbury and Wireless Festival, winning over the audience with her alluring songs and energetic live performances. Dua is poised to have the next year be her biggest yet, and Evening Standard has predicted “pop’s newest star is hot right now but her 2017 could be even hotter.”
London-born Dua always knew she wanted to be a singer. With her father, also a musician, as primary influence, Dua’s musical upbringing was one of wild contrasts; she listened to Destiny’s Child, Tupac and Biggie, while her dad nurtured her with Bob Dylan and David Bowie. The hefty presence of rock, R&B, pop and rap quickly became telling factors, and a young Dua was soon singing with students twice her age at The Sylvia Young Theatre School.
Now at the age of 19, Dua’s deep, smoky voice and rhythmic flow has taken her into studios in London, LA, Stockholm, New York and Toronto, and into sessions with Emile Haynie (Lana Del Rey, FKA Twigs) and Andrew Wyatt (Miike Snow, Charli XCX). The adventure itself has become an inspiration, and her sound has become the pure, impressionable and passionate sound of a London-raised girl consuming the world first hand and then expressing it in her own flavour.
