Dua Lipa has revealed her latest single was inspired by "a string of bad dates".

The singer's latest release, Training Season, was written after a run of bad dating experiences.

“I had been on a string of bad dates, and the last one was the final straw," she said. "The next morning I arrived to the studio to (co-writers) Caroline (Ailin), and Tobias (Jesso Jr.) asking me how it all went and I immediately declared ‘TRAINING SEASON IS OVER,’ and like the best ‘day after’ debriefs with your mates, we had a lot of laughs and it all quickly came together from there.”

She added, "While it is obviously about that feeling when you are just absolutely done telling people…men specifically in this case, how to date you right; it is also about my training season being over and me growing with every experience. I have never felt more confident, clear or empowered. And while it may be that training season is never over for any of us, you start to see the beauty in finding that person to experience it with. You stop looking for the trainees and become more interested in having someone where you are and someone to grow with."

Training Season will be released on 15 February.

The Houdini singer has reportedly been dating British actor Callum Turner for the past couple of months.
