Dua Lipa Future Nostalgia

e788fbc7cd702dfff71fa1629398e8fdMy favorite album of 2020 so far is Dua Lipa’s “Future Nostalgia”. Superbly produced and conceived, you can tell a lot of thought and pruning went into this record. It steers away from trends and pays homage to the 1970’s and 1980’s dancefloor, think Olivia Newton-John, Donna Summer and Kylie Minogue all rolled into one, but still sounding current. My favorite song is “Love Again” which includes a sample of Bing Crosby’s song “My Woman”, although some know  Al Bowly’s version better , I’m hoping this track ends up as a single. Almost any song could be a radio hit, other standouts include “Break My Heart”, “Levitating”, the fun “Good in Bed” and “Hallucinate” which burns up the dancefloor with a Kylie Minogue electro-vibe reminiscent of her “Fever” album. A perfect album, the sonic quality of the cute transparent pink vinyl is fabulous, but I take off a few points for not including a download card, vinyls are expensive, I don’t think I should have to pay again to have the music on my phone when I’m out or at the gym.
