Amazon Music has announced a new Amazon Original remix of the Dua Lipa song, “Illusion” from her latest album Radical Optimism.

The Amazon Music Original “Illusion (Regard Remix — Amazon Music Original)” is available for listening now. Regard’s remix features a new euphoric piano hook and a driving 4-to-the-floor kick and bassline to complement Dua Lipa’s original vocals. The original version of “Illusion” debuted on her Radical Optimism album, which went straight to #1 in 11 countries, including the UK where it became the biggest debut from a UK artist in 2024.

In the United States, the album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top Album Sales chart and #2 on the Billboard 200 chart, marking Dua Lipa’s biggest sales week yet. Last month, Amazon Music and Dua Lipa shared the meaning behind some of the tracks on the album so fans can enjoy the music along with commentary from Dua Lipa herself.

In her commentary, Dua Lipa delves into the meaning behind ‘Radical Optimism’ covering topics such as the inspiration for the album cover, the songwriting process, her genre description, the importance of performing at Glastonbury, along with a dive into the meaning behind several songs from the album. Fans can hear the Amazon Exclusive track-by-track experience here.
