Already one of our favorite albums of the year, Future Nostalgia had us up off the quarantine couch and bopping around in our pjs. But Dua Lipa isn’t quite done partying to that record — she’s actually just getting started. Later this month, the pop star will release a new remix album, Club Future Nostalgia, that will bring the original LP further into nightlife rotation.
To tease this forthcoming project, Lipa is sharing a rework of “Levitating”, and it features some folks who pretty much grew up on the dance floor: Madonna, Missy Elliott, and The Blessed Madonna, the house/techno producer formerly known as The Black Madonna.
Given this star-studded assemblage, it’s no wonder the new version wastes no time breaking a sweat. And once it launches into heady overdrive, it never quite relents — just like a club DJ who knows exactly how to work a room. Take a listen below.
Club Future Nostalgia: The Album is officially out August 28th and promises additional collaborations with Mark Ronson and Gwen Stefani, whom Lipa just interviewed while guest-hosting Jimmy Kimmel Live. In recent months, Lipa has also kept busy by providing the hook for J Balvin’s “UN DÍA (ONE DAY)”and co-writing Sia’s recent charity single “Saved My Life”.
Update #1: A video for the remix premiered on Friday morning. Directed by Will Hooper, the snazzy clip is lensed with a candy-coated, Miami glaze, which only adds to its mythical and celestial imagery. It’s like a four-minute Ring Pop. Watch below.
Update #2: Lipa has revealed the full tracklist for Club Future Nostalgia, and it is even more stacked than we thought. Among the new names: BLACKPINK, Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, Yaeji, and Jayda G. Also promised are samples of Stevie Nicks, Jamiroquai, and Art of Noise.
