Earlier this week, British singer-songwriter Dua Lipa announced that she’d be pushing her upcoming record, Future Nostalgia, forward a week to release this Friday, March 27. The surprising turn came on the heels of two other visual offerings in “Don’t Start Now” and “Physical”.

She took to Instagram live earlier this week to announce her decision to move her album from April 3 to the new date, acknowledging that the current global Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic played a pivotal role. “I hope [the album] brings you some happiness,” she said through tears. “And I hope it makes you smile, and I hope it makes you dance. I hope I make you proud.”

The track, which samples INXS’s “Need You Tonight” from 1987, also features a chorus that is eerily timely given the current wave of self-quarantines and isolation at home. She sings, “I would’ve stayed at home, ’cause I was always better alone/ But when you said ‘hello’, I knew it was the end of it all/ I should’ve stayed at home, ’cause now there ain’t no letting you go/ Am I falling in love with the one that could break my heart?”

Watch Dua Lipa’s latest offering below and stay tuned for her new project, Future Nostalgia to release this Friday, March 27. She also took to YouTube to livestream her entire album with the hashtags #StayHome #WithMe. Watch that offering below, too. In more music updates, Joyner Lucas served up anew music style in honor of Will Smith’s career and mentorship with “Will”.
