Dua Lipa has announced her new album is called Radical Optimism, and will be released on 3 May.

The singer made the highly anticipated announcement on Instagram on Wednesday.

Radical Optimism will be her third studio album and will contain 11 tracks. She's already released two singles from the record; Houdini and Training Season.

"A couple years ago, a friend introduced me to the term ‘radical optimism,'” she said in a statement. “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.”

"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.”

The album cover shows the One Kiss singer floating in the sea, with what appears to be a shark fin behind her.

Radical Optimism is the 28-year-old's first album since 2020, when she released Future Nostalgia.
