As for the sound of the record, Helders explained: “We tend to always move it on a little bit. For us, because we’re so involved in it, it always makes sense.

“[The albums] always kind of pick up where the other one left off in a way. It makes sense when you think about it in the context of the last record. But we always do try and do something a bit different – it’s kind of hard to describe. You can tell it’s the same band.”

Meanwhile, Dua Lipa has announced Service95 – a new self-curated online hub compiling “words, stories, cultural recommendations” and more.
