Tulisa gives a major tour of N-Dubz’s luxury recording studio after announcing a new album is on the way
It is official. N-Dubz is back strong after Tulisa Contostavlos, 34, confirmed a new album is on the way.
The news comes after the brunette beauty posted a video to her Instagram showing fans a behind-the-scenes tour of the recording studio.
Tulisa captioned the post, “Come take a little tour of N-Dubz’s residential recording studio during downtime after the freestyle shoot.”
She continued, “We just spent 5 weeks here recording the new NDUBZ album. It was an experience, what a journey. I can’t wait for you all to hear it.”
The video revealed a large living room, with glamorous open brickwork and a coffee table with a chessboard, presumably where the band plays to relax and unwind after a long studio session.

In the room beyond was a pool and hot tub, and beyond that was a luxurious, state-of-the-art studio.
As Tulisa continued her behind-the-scenes tour, she showed fans a homemade bar where she poured a pint of Guinness, a vocal booth, a ping pong table, and a massive home theater where she recorded herself playing video games.
Her followers flocked to her comments to express their delight at the upcoming album, including former Little Mix member Leigh Anne Pinnock.
She wrote, “So excited for this,” and left two heart emojis.
When a fan asked if a name had been thought of for the album, Tulisa confirmed that the trio had decided on a title, but did not reveal it yet.
It was revealed earlier this year that the band reportedly signed a “massive two-album deal” with EMI Records, part of industry giant Universal Music.
