Last night (April 11), Dua Lipa unveiled the track, which marks the third song to be released from her upcoming album ‘Radical Optimism’. Co-produced by Tame Impala‘s Kevin Parker, ‘Illusion’ features a bouncy four-on-the-floor beat, pianos and synths.

In the track’s accompanying music video, Dua Lipa is seen dancing alongside high divers and synchronized swimmers shot at scenic pools across Barcelona, Spain.

Lipa sings on the track: “Don’t you know I could do this dance all night? Ooh, what you doin’? / Don’t know who you think that you’re confusing / I be like, Ooh, it’s amusing / You think I’m gonna fall for an illusion.”

Lipa said of the track via a press release: “‘Illusion’ was the first song Caroline [Ailin], Danny [L. Harle], Tobias [Jesso Jr.], Kevin [Parker] and I worked on together, and it really broke the ice for the record. It’s about knowing what you’re getting yourself into, but staying for the hell of it. The joke’s on them, it’s the fun of playing someone at their own game because ultimately you won’t fall for an illusion.”

Prior to ‘Illusion’, Lipa released the album’s first single ‘Houdini’ in early November last year, followed by ‘Training Season’, which she debuted at the Grammys earlier this year.

She is due to release her “psychedelia, trip-hop, and Britpop”-inspired third studio record on May 3 (pre-order/pre-save here). Lipa also recently revealed which song gave her the “eureka moment” when making the upcoming ‘Radical Optimism’.

Last month, it was confirmed that Lipa will headline Glastonbury 2024 alongside Coldplay and SZA. She is reportedly set to capture her visit to Worthy Farm for a new documentary film.

She also announced a one-off concert at the historic Royal Albert Hall in London for this autumn, as well as a run of European shows for this summer.
