A full new project from one of my fave Swedish darlings is on its way!
That is correct: Tove Lo has confirmed a September 20 release date for her forthcoming album Sunshine Kitty. Along with the previously released lead single “Glad He’s Gone,” the album will feature guest spots from Jax Jones, Doja Cat, MC Zaac and… KYLIE MINOGUE! We are undeserving.
To keep us satisfied until then, Tove has just dropped “Bad As The Boys,” a new collaboration with another one of my favorites, Finnish pop star ALMA! On the breezy, acoustic-laced, summertime bop, Tove and ALMA detail a summer fling that turned to heartbreak.
“‘Bad as the Boys’ is about my first summer girl crush when I was in my teens. It’s about that sting you feel in your heart when you know summer is coming to an end and so is the romance,” Tove Lo said in a statement. “Since I’m singing about a girl I wanted another female artist on it who also likes girls; so I hit up ALMA. She really felt the song and was down to sing it with me. She has such an amazing voice and she absolutely killed it! And she’s badass.”
This is storytelling done right! Tove rarely does wrong in my eyes, and “Bad As The Boys” is certainly no exception. Bring on the album!
