Tove Lo has releases her brand new single Cool Girl, the first single from her upcoming second album.
The new album is the successor to Tove Lo’s debut album of 2014, Queen Of The Clouds, which included Habits (Stay High), the global number 1 hit, and Talking Body.
Tove Lo has also featured on tracks by Nick Jonas (Close), Coldplay (Fun), Years & Years (Desire), Broods (Freak Of Nature), Flume (Say It), and Alesso (Heroes) since her debut.
Cool Girl, inspired by the movie Gone Girl, is produced by fellow Swedes and frequent collaborators the Struts. Hypnotically catchy, Cool Girl contemplates the hollowness and ironies of affecting an easygoing, feminine persona.
“When you create, you try to get out of your safe zone,” says Tove Lo, who writes her own music and lyrics. “It’s okay to be pissed off or depressed. You’ll pick yourself back up. We shouldn’t be so scared of our emotions.”
“Cool Girl is about our weird need to play the game of whoever feels less, has the power in relationships. You think you want someone who doesn’t want you, or you want someone who isn’t fazed by anything you do. Really we all just want full on, real love.”
