Dua Lipa: Tiny Desk (Home) Concert

This NPR Tiny Desk concert features megastar Dua Lipa, performing with her band in London in December 2020, under the Covid-related restrictions that have been keeping everyone at home.

Of Kosovar Albanian descent, Dua Lipa was raised in the UK and rose to super stardom in the three years since her eponymous debut album dropped in 2017.

Here, with a genuine smile stretched across her face, Dua Lipa joyously reconnects with her band for their only performance since their tour in support of her sophomore album, ‘Future Nostalgia’, was cancelled in March 2020.

Glowing from the inside out, and accentuated by the apricot hues of the London studio’s interior, Dua and her back-up vocalists and band bring life and warmth into households in need of “levitating” and some pep in their step to battle lockdown fatigue and social distancing.

This vibrant four-song set of dance hits, all from ‘Future Nostalgia’, will surely have you cutting up the floor in your kitchen. Enjoy!

Set list:

  • “Levitating”
  • “Pretty Please”
  • “Love Again”
  • “Don’t Start Now”

Musicians:

  • Dua Lipa: vocals
  • Matthew Carroll: bass
  • Alex Lanyon: guitar

  • Ciara O’Connor: vocals
