Future Nostalgia: Dua Lipa’s Latest Release Becomes the Disco Record We’ve Been Waiting For

Dua Lipa, a British pop star, made history by being the first big pop diva to release an album while being in quarantine. She has recently taken over the world by storm with her second studio album.

She has had set several hit records and continues to do so with her most recent album, “Future Nostalgia.” Her music is a great homage to the disco and electronic style music of the 1980s and 1990s.

Let’s have a look at what Dua Lipa’s Future Nostalgia album is about.

Reflection on Childhood Influences

Future Nostalgia has been met with high expectations, notably among the music press in the UK. Lipa says on the opening title track, “You want a timeless song, I want to change the game.” Lipa stated that she wanted to incorporate childhood inspirations such as Blondie, Madonna, and Gwen Stefani into the album.

Lipa has built a more unified artistic vision than she did on her debut album by exploring the music of her childhood. The album indicates a need in pop music for nostalgia, particularly the distinct sound of the 1980s and 1990s, which Lipa has filled — recreating these genres for a new era.

Future Nostalgia teaches us how to modernize the decade-defining synthesizer of the 1980s, which is amplified in the rich, brilliant chorus of the modern age.

The album’s 80’s vibe and production are unquestioningly compelling, drawing you in for the whole album while still providing enough variance in each track.

A Distraction to COVID-19 Crises

Following the COVID-19 outbreak, which caused many of her peers’ projects to be postponed, Dua Lipa could not have chosen a better moment to release such an album, and it is the perfect diversion from these extraordinary times.

According to Billboard, Lipa was the first big pop diva to release an album in quarantine.

‘Don’t Stop Now’ (a disco-infused dance smash), ‘Cool,’ which makes great use of Lipa’s husky vocal textures, ‘Physical’ (a contemporary recreation of 80s spandex workouts), and ‘Break My Heart’ (INXS sampling, ‘Need You Tonight’ – a foot-stomping tribute to funk) are among the tracks that stand out.

Dua Lipa stated in an interview with The Guardian that she wanted to make an album that made her want to dance while also disconnecting her from the outside world.
