The 24- year-old vocalist provided a credit to the group’s Andrew Farriss and the late Michael Hutchence for the track on her brand-new album ‘Future Fond memories’ since she didn’t desire to “get sued”, however she confessed the similarities in between the tune of the 2 tracks wasn’t deliberate.

Inquired about the credit, she informed Signboard’s ‘Pop Store’ podcast: “When we remained in the studio, we didn’t rather link the dots. We were simply like, ‘Oh yeah, this is excellent!’ We were on such a high and we were simply dealing with it, and after that I listened back, and I was like ‘Hang on, men …’ …

” The men at INXS, individuals that are caring for the publishing, were really good and they actually liked the song, so we provided a publishing credit, a composing credit on the track, since it was just reasonable, and it simply brought fond memories even more to the leading edge, you understand? It verified that part for us.

“It was a funny moment when we were like, ‘Eureka!’ And then, ‘Oh, wait a second…’ … I’m not trying to get sued, is kind of the moral of the story.”

When it came to selecting the tracks for the album, Dua went with those she might see carrying out at her “dream” gig at the Glastonbury celebration.

She discussed: “If I could imagine it at a festival — like Glastonbury is always my little dream bubble that comes up — I’m like, ‘If I can perform this song at Glastonbury then it should go on the record’.”

Ahead of the release of the album, Dua launched the single ‘Do not Start Now’ and she confessed she was really anxious about letting fans hear it.

She stated: “I had never been so scared to release a song. But I loved the song and I was so proud of it and I was so happy to put it out and it be so different from what I had done before. I guess people’s response, that was the win for me. … I knew that me being out of my comfort zone and making this record was the right decision.”
