The observe seems within the movie ‘Alita: Battle Angel.’
Dua Lipa unveiled a brand new observe “Swan Song” and accompanying video on Thursday (Jan. 24).
Amid a futuristic, post-war world setting, Lipa wanders across the smoke-filled streets of Iron City, sporting heavy gold and silver chains over a black leather-based crop high and pants. “The flicker burning, you already know the time's operating, operating out/ Only I see all of the diamonds, diamonds/ Breaking down/ I gained't keep quiet, I gained't keep quiet/ 'Cause staying silent's the identical as dying/ I gained't keep quiet, the sparkle's burning low,” she sings.
Lipa and others then attempt to outrun the looming menace of daunting drones who go to take captives. Lipa later reemerges in one other setting, nearly as if waking up from a nightmare, the place she faces herself in a mirror.
The observe seems within the upcoming motion movie Alita: Battle Angel, and with darkish eye make-up and an ensemble of a flowy crop high and pants, Lipa channels the titular character of the movie as she practices combat stances for an imminent battle.
The video’s director, Floria Sigismondi, defined the deliberate connection between Lipa’s video and the movie in an announcement.
“While within the movie Alita is sort of actually on a journey to find who she is, her story serves as a extremely highly effective allegory for any woman who doesn’t but know her personal energy,” Sigismondi said. “I wished to play with that very same profound notion by dropping Dua right into a side of Alita’s world and permitting Alita to function a surrogate that leads her on a journey to find she’s stronger than she ever may have imagined.”
