Dua Lipa has been "digging deeper and deeper" for her upcoming new album.

The 'Dance the Night' hitmaker has been working on her as-yet-untitled third record and she is "proud" of how much progress she's made as an artist over the last few years.

Speaking on the red carpet at the Grammy Awards on Sunday (04.02.24), she told 'Entertainment Tonight': "I feel like with every album, I get to grow more and learn more about myself and I become more free as a songwriter and as a performer and as an artist. "So, this one, I'm just like digging deeper and deeper. I love it. I'm proud of this one."

Last month, the 26-year-old singer announced she would premiere 'Training Day' from the album on 15 February, and she has explained the "vibe" of the track, which she got to record "at home in London".

She said: "[It's] just about kind of knowing how to... like not expecting for people to like, love you right, you know? You're just like, training season's over. You're done teaching people how to do things right.

"[Come correct or] don't come at all. That's the vibe."

Dua previously shared a snippet from the track on her TikTok account.

She could be seen singing along to the song while dancing in the back of a car, with the lyrics including: “I need someone to hold me close / deeper than I’ve ever known / whose love feels like a rodeo / knows just how to take control / He’s straight talking to my soul/conversation overload / got me feeling vertigo."

Meanwhile, the 'Levitating' hitmaker also explained writing 'Dance the Night' for 'Barbie' with Caroline Ailin, Andrew Wyatt and Mark Ronson was a new and fun experience for her.

Speaking on 'E! Live from the Red Carpet', she said: "It was such a different experience, I learned so much from it as a whole.

"I think going in and analysing a different story and ... writing for an assignment was a very different than writing from things that I know and things that I have. I loved it, I loved it. It's much easier I think sometimes having an assignment and then you can sit in and build from there."
