In a hectic week that included three nominations for the 2024 Brit Awards, Dua Lipa, the popular singer, revealed exciting news about her upcoming single, “Training Season,” which is scheduled to be published on February 15th.
The infectious “Houdini” was the first single from her highly anticipated third album; this new track follows in that vein. Dua Lipa, who is 28 years old, enthusiastically shared the news in a TikTok video where she lip-synced to a sample of the new song. Showcasing her own pop sound, she sings in the teaser about a relationship that feels like a rodeo.
After a string of lethargic dates, the final one served as the breaking point, according to Dua Lipa, who said that it was this experience that inspired the song. “The following morning, when I got to the studio, Caroline [Ailin] and Tobias [Jesso Jr.] were asking how everything went, and I proclaimed, ‘Training season is over.'” This proclamation set off a creative explosion, and the outcome is an upbeat hymn that reflects on love, self-improvement, and empowerment.
The artist elaborated on the song’s ideas, highlighting how they apply to more than just her personal life. This isn’t only about her training season ending; it’s also about her learning from every experience. “While it is obviously about that feeling when you are just absolutely done telling people… men specifically in this case, how to date you right,” she said. Never before have I felt so sure of myself, so clear, and so empowered. Even while none of us ever truly gets out of training, there’s something quite magical about discovering the perfect partner to share the journey with.
“Training Season” is Dua Lipa’s next big move, following the success of “Houdini,” and it demonstrates her self-assurance and clarity. An anthem that speaks to the universal need for true connection will likely accompany her as she negotiates the intricacies of love and self-discovery.
The release date of February 15th has fans of Dua Lipa’s music giddy with excitement, as they impatiently await the arrival of another smash hit from the artist.
