Dua Lipa has released further details about her upcoming second album.
Speaking to GQ, the singer explained that she is currently working on the record, which will follow her self titled debut.
The new tracks will continue her distinctive style of floor-filler pop anthems about heartbreak, which she dubs “dance crying”.
She said: “It is a pop album that you’re going to be able to dance to, but a lot of the songs are sad.
“They’re about heartbreak and they’re about going through some emotional manipulation.”
She then went on to discuss her difficulty in writing tracks about happier subjects.
“It kind of sucks that that’s the thing that really triggers my creativity, but happy things don’t seem to do it for me.”
Elsewhere in the interview, Dua Lipa discussed sexism in the music industry and the importance of the #MeToo movement.
“For a female artist, it takes a lot more to be taken seriously if you’re not sat down at a piano or with a guitar, you know?” she said. “For a male artist, people instantly assume they write their own music, but for women, they assume it’s all manufactured.”
Earlier this week, rumours spread that an Ariana Grande and Dua Lipa collaboration may be coming soon, after a leaked snippet started circulating on social media.
