Dua Lipa Remains Resilient On Empowering ‘Alita’ Anthem, ‘Swan Song’!

Dua Lipa has one major priority for 2019, and that’s to give us her anticipated sophomore album, which has been in the works since the release of her 2017 self-titled debut. While we patiently await what’s to come from round II, the “New Rules” hit-maker has blessed us with a brand new single called, “Swan Song“!

Taken from the soundtrack to the upcoming James Cameron-produced movie Alita: Battle Angel, “Swan Song” is far from being a final statement – it’s a defiant number lined with intricate, rumbling percussion. “I won’t stay quiet, I won’t stay quiet/ ‘Cause staying silent’s the same as dying/ I won’t stay quiet, the flicker’s burning low,” Dua sings, before powerfully declaring that “this is not a/ this is not a/ swan song!

It’s a not so expected take on a self-empowerment anthem, and for that I must give it credit. Dua just knows the how to give a song that extra edge, and this is certainly no exception.

The song comes accompanied with a music video directed by Floria Sigismondi, set in a dystopian world inspired by Alita. “While in the film Alita is quite literally on a journey to discover who she is, her story serves as a really powerful allegory for any girl who doesn’t yet know her own power,” Floria said in a statement. “I wanted to play with that same profound notion by dropping Dua into a facet of Alita‘s world and allowing Alita to serve as a surrogate that leads her on a journey to discover she’s stronger than she ever could have imagined.”

Dua Lipa’s “Swan Song (from Alita: Battle Angel)” is also available on Apple Music and Spotify!
