Dua Lipa has been teasing her third studio album for months, and she finally officially announced its release. Her long-awaited new record will be titled Radical Optimism, and she’ll share it with the world this May.

Lipa released an official statement announcing her new album and said she opted for the title Radical Optimism after a friend introduced her to this term a few years ago.

“It’s a concept that resonated with me, 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 addition to announcing the album’s title, the Grammy-winning singer also shared the cover art, which shows her floating in an ocean, unfazed by a shark approaching her. She also shared a full tracklist of her new album, which will feature a total of 11 songs.

“Houdini” was released as the album’s lead single back in November and peaked at No. 2 in the UK, in addition to hitting the top ten in many other countries. It was followed by “Training Season”, which Lipa teased during her performance at this year’s Grammys.

Radical Optimism will be released on May 3 via Warner Records.
