Dua Lipa has announced details of a newsletter and podcast called Service95, launching next year.

The platform is described as “a global style, culture, and society concierge service created to help the reader make sense of the world” that “will serve up a witty and considered curation of lists, recommendations, stories, information, thoughts, perspectives and conversations you won’t hear, see, or read everywhere else.

“The more we share with each other, the closer we become, the wider our circles grow,” Dua said of the new platform in a statement.

She added: “I find huge joy in telling people what I’ve learned about in any given city and love finding connection in our shared experiences. Service95 is going to take that idea and bring it to anyone who’s as curious as I am about life.”

Alongside the Service95 newsletter, a new podcast – described as a “companion to the newsletter” – will feature in-depth conversations between Dua and guests.

She commented: “Though a lot of my guests have done their fair share of talking, I want to go deeper with them. Not only am I probing them about the things I’m most curious about, I’m also treating them like the experts they are.”

Earlier this week, Dua Lipa announced that Tove Lo, Griff and Angèle will be the support acts on her 2022 UK and European tour. The pop singers will hit the road next April for the ‘Future Nostalgia’ tour – also the name of Lipa’s second album, which came out last year.

The UK leg of the tour will kick off in Manchester next year, visiting Birmingham, Leeds, Newcastle, Glasgow, Nottingham, Cardiff and Liverpool, rounded up by two shows at London’s O2 Arena.

A North American tour will precede the UK run of dates from February to April. Caroline Polachek and Lolo Zouaï will support Lipa at the shows, with Megan Thee Stallion set to perform as a special guest at a trio of dates.

Elsewhere, it was recently announced that Lipa’s management team, TaP Music, is set to work with the BBC to choose the UK’s entry for the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest.

The singer expressed her support for the change: “I’m a proud Brit whilst also being a proud Kosovan. I’m happy to lend my manager to the cause. I’ll be cheering them on!”

Eurovision royalty ABBA also suggested that they would write the next UK entry if Lipa was on board to sing it.
