Taking to social media today (August 11), Lipa announced that her new single with John will arrive this Friday (August 13). It’s called “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)”.

“Dua, I adore you, and it has been an incredible experience making this together. I can’t wait for you all to hear it!”
Responding in the comments section, Lipa wrote: “I love you! I’m so excited” before posting the news to Instagram.
