The follow-up to Dua Lipa’s hit album Future Nostalgia has been years in the making, but it was worth the wait! The Grammy-winning singer announced the May release date of her third studio album Radical Optimism, along with its tracklist and album cover.

Lipa has been teasing the release of Radical Optimism since last fall when she gave us a taste of things to come with the lead single “Houdini”. Many months have passed since, and she finally shared all the important info about this album, including its title, release date, tracklist, and cover.

The cover art shows Lipa relaxing in the ocean while a shark swims around her, and it perfectly conveys the thought behind its title Radical Optimism.

“A couple of years ago, a friend introduced me to the term Radical Optimism […] 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,” said Lipa in a statement.

Radical Optimism will come out on May 3, and it will feature 11 brand-new songs. “Houdini” was released as its lead single, followed by “Training Season”, which Lipa teased during her performance at this year’s Grammy Awards.
