Pop star Dua Lipa has delighted her fans by dropping her brand new single 'Swan Song', taken from the upcoming new movie, Alita: Battle Angel.

Dua Lipa, who was confirmed as a performer at The BRIT Awards 2019 earlier today, revealed the news to fans on social media, writing, 'It’s finally here! SWAN SONG from the motion picture ALITA BATTLE ANGEL ⚔🖤 you don’t wanna miss this one! In cinemas Feb 14th xx'. [sic]

Since Dua released the track earlier this afternoon, the video has received nearly 500k views, with fans loving the new single. One user wrote, ' PERFECT SONG, WE LOVE!!!! ❤❤❤', with another adding, 'This song is amazing!! i love it❤️❤️'. [sic]

The amazing video, which was directed by Floria Sigismondi, shows Dua in the streets of the Iron City in the middle of Alita’s world. Speaking about the video, Floria said, “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.”

Check out the official video for 'Swan Song' below:

The new release comes just hours after it was revealed that Dua would be performing at The Brit Awards next month, alongside Calvin Harris, Rag'n'Bone Man AND Sam Smith.

The quartet will be taking to the stage together to perform a 'not-to-be missed collaboration'.
