Later this month, Dua Lipa will release her comeback single “Houdini.

The Grammy-winning pop star has been dropping cryptic clues on her social media, and fans have finally cracked the code.

She shared a preview of the new track on Halloween (31Oct23), which happens to be the date of famous magician Houdini’s death, in which she sings: “Tell me all the ways you need me.”

At the end of the clip, the numbers 4 8 9 9 14 15 21 flash on the screen, and if you swap them for her letters, it translates to Houdini.

The track will be the lead single from Dua’s upcoming follow-up to 2020’s dance album, Future Nostalgia.

Earlier this year, Dua scored a huge hit with ‘Dance The Night’ from the live-action ‘Barbie’ movie.

It was recently claimed that the ‘Levitating’ singer is set to ditch her disco-pop era in favor of music influenced by “1970s psychedelia”.

The ‘Physical’ hitmaker is said to be reinventing her sound with the help of psychedelic act Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker, according to a New York Times Style magazine profile of the 28-year-old.

When asked if the rumor was true, she coyly replied: “I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

The profile noted: “She doesn’t want to “alienate” them [her fans], even though she’s developing a new sound that may be less influenced by the house and disco beats beneath songs like ‘Physical’ and ‘Hallucinate’ than by 1970s psychedelia.”

Producer Mark Ronson – who supervised the Barbie soundtrack – has heard parts of the record and joked that it’s a whole new era for Dua.

He told Vulture: “I’ve heard some of it and it’s incredible.”

Referring to the music video for ‘Dance The Night’, he suggested a key moment could be a big hint of what’s to come.

He added: “I think that’s why there’s the disco ball smashing in the video, right?

“That feels like her triumphant stomp on that era of her music into whatever she does next.”
