Dua Lipa Drops A ‘Live Acoustic EP’ Featuring “New Rules”
Merry Christmas! Dua Lipa just dropped a surprise live EP called, pragmatically enough, Live Acoustic EP. The four song set is comprised of three covers and a new version of breakout hit “New Rules.” While there’s nothing that we haven’t heard before, it’s the first time random offerings like her interpretation of Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind” and her tribute to Amy Winehouse, a duet version of “Tears Dry On Their Own” with Gallant, have been available outside of YouTube. The third cover is a dreamy take on The Beatles’ “Golden Slumbers.”
2017 has been very good to Dua. After releasing a string of singles (five, to be precise), the 22-year-old finally struck gold with the sixth single from her self-titled debut LP. “New Rules” topped the UK singles chart on the back of massive streaming numbers and a viral video, and then conquered markets around the globe. The US was the last to catch on, but we’re making up for lost time. The track reached a new peak of number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 this week and is destined to climb higher.
