Real life angel Dua Lipa has just released her single ‘Swan Song’.
The song was written for the upcoming film Alita: Battle Angel, the epic action-adventure from producers James Cameron and Jon Landau, (AVATAR) and director Robert Rodriguez (SIN CITY). The movie comes out worldwide in theatres on February 5.
‘Swan Song’, co-written by Dua Lipa along with Justin Tranter, Kennedi Lykken, Mattias Larsson, Robin Fredriksson, and Tom Holkenborg, is a confident fight song. Its driving synths build up to a carefully curated minimal chorus, with each section shaping up to the final booming hook.
Watch the video for ‘Swan Song’ by Dua Lipa:
The video, directed by Floria Sigismondi, places Lipa on the hazardous streets of Iron City in the middle of Alita’s world. Floria said of the video “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. 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.”
