Dua Lipa ‘terrified’ LP Future Nostalgia won’t live up to success of first album

Dua LIpa has announced her second LP will be titled Future Nostalgia but she ­admitted she was terrified to come back after the crazy success of her debut.

The Don’t Start Now ­songstress confessed to ­feeling “terrified” that her next album could never live up to the same success she had with self-titled ­effort, which saw her win the Grammy Award for Best New Artist.

Dua revealed: “You never really know how people will respond and I feel the music is a little different to what people have heard before. It is still pop but it has disco influences and it’s 80s inspired.

“Especially after the Grammys everyone was like, ‘Now you’ve got a lot of pressure, you really have to come back with something special for the second album.’ I was terrified.

“I definitely felt the pressure but I realised I just want to have fun with it and I wanted to mature as an artist in that sense.”

Dua announced the record by unveiling a tattoo of the title on her arm – and has said she wanted it to feel like a completely different era.

She continued: “Because I have been touring for so long, I wanted it to be a bit more instrumental and I wanted it to be different.

“I didn’t want to feel that I am trying to recreate anything from the first record. I want it to live in its own lane, I suppose.”

And she’s set to take the record on her “biggest tour to date” in 2020.
