Watch Dua Lipa’s New “Training Season” Video


After debuting it at the 2024 Grammy Awards, Dua Lipa has officially released her new song “Training Season.” She co-wrote the single with Caroline Ailin, Danny L Harle, Tobias Jesso Jr., and Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker—her collaborators on recent track “Houdini.” Harle and Parker also co-produced the new song. Watch the “Training Season” video, directed by Vincent Haycock, below.

In a press release on “Training Season,” Dua Lipa stated:

I had been on a string of bad dates, and the last one was the final straw. The next morning I arrived to the studio to Caroline and Tobias asking me how it all went and I immediately declared “TRAINING SEASON IS OVER,” and like the best “day after” debriefs with your mates, we had a lot of laughs and it all quickly came together from there.

And while it is obviously about that feeling when you are just absolutely done telling people… men specifically in this case, how to date you right; it is also about my training season being over and me growing with every experience. I have never felt more confident, clear or empowered. And while it may be that training season is never over for any of us, you start to see the beauty in finding that person to experience it with. You stop looking for the trainees and become more interested in having someone where you are and someone to grow with.
