Dua has previously told fans she was keen to release a B-sides to the chart-topping collection, which was the UK's biggest album released in 2020.
It's not yet know what songs will feature, but Dua has previously spoken about working with Nile Rodgers on songs for Future Nostalgia that didn't make the final cut. Explaining why at the time, she said: "I think I just needed a bit more of a future element in terms of production. The production we did together was amazing, but took it into beautiful disco and Chic. It needed to be more current."
The collection follows Club Future Nostalgia, a remix album featuring guest appearances from Missy Elliott, Madonna, Blackpink and Gwen Stefani.
B-sides albums - usually made up of tracks that didn't make the final cut of a record - have grown in popularity in recent years. They're often put out between album cycles as a way of keeping diehard fans entertained while they work on new music.
Recent examples of artists releasing successful leftovers albums include Eminem, who released a Side B of his chart-topping Music To Be Murdered By album earlier this month, and Drake, who scored Number 1 on the Official Albums Chart last May with Dark Lane Demo Tapes. In 2019 he also hit Number 4 with Care Package - both collections were made up of old songs previously only available on SoundCloud or YouTube.
Carly Rae Jepsen has also put out B-side companions to her albums Emotion (2016) and Dedicated (2020), both made up of songs that didn't make their respective records.
