Dua Lipa’s New Album ‘Radical Optimism’: Everything To Know, Including The Release Date, Tracklist, And More

At long last, DL3 has a title. Dua Lipa‘s third album (and first since 2020’s Grammy-nominated Future Nostalgia) is called Radical Optimism.

“A couple years ago, a friend introduced me to the term Radical Optimism. It’s a concept that resonated with me, and I became more curious as I started to play with it and weave it into my life,” she said in a statement. “It struck me — the idea of going through chaos gracefully and feeling like you can weather any storm. At the same time, I found myself looking through the music history of psychedelia, trip hop, and Britpop. It has always felt so confidently optimistic to me, and that honesty and attitude is a feeling I took into my recording sessions.”

Dua Lipa previously described the album as “a bit more raw. I want to capture the essence of youth and freedom and having fun and just letting things happen, whether it’s good or bad. You can’t change it. You just have to roll with the punches of whatever’s happening in your life.”

Here’s everything to know ahead of the album’s release.
