In 2015, Lipa began working on her debut album for Warner Music Group. Lipa began planning the project in early 2015, shortly after the launch of her debut single "New Love" produced by Emile Haynie and Andrew Wyatt. Work continued throughout 2016 as Lipa traveled to promote released music in the US. Lipa describes the album as "dark pop". The album was originally scheduled to be released on 30 September 2016, but it was eventually pushed back to 10 February 2017. On 11 January 2017, Lipa announced via Twitter that the album's release had been delayed again until 2 June, as she wanted to include "new songs and exciting collaborations". The song "Blow Your Mind (Mwah)" was released to iTunes on 26 August 2016, accompanied by Lipa revealing the album artwork and pre-order.
