Critically acclaimed, Grammy®-nominated multi-platinum artist Tove Lo will release her long-awaited second album Lady Wood on October 28th. Lady Wood will include “Cool Girl,” the first new single to drop from Tove Lo in advance of her upcoming 6-week North American fall tour with Maroon 5. In just a few weeks since its release, “Cool Girl” has reached 48,000,000 streams on Spotify and is approaching Top 20 on the Global Chart.
Lady Wood is the long-awaited successor to Tove Lo’s landmark debut album of 2014, the RIAA platinum Queen Of The Clouds. The album included “Habits (Stay High),” the career-defining 5x-platinum global #1 hit that introduced her to North American audiences, and has surpassed 1 billion Spotify streams; and the double-platinum follow-up, “Talking Body”. In addition to “Close,” Tove Lo has also been the featured artist on tracks by Coldplay (“Fun”), Years & Years (“Desire”), Broods (“Freak Of Nature”), Flume (“Say It”), and Alesso (“Heroes”).
Fairy Dust refers to anticipation, as in the seductive slow-jam “Influence” (featuring rapper Wiz Khalifa), and the prowling title track, “Lady Wood.” Tove Lo compares that anticipation to “when the adrenaline starts to kick in. It gives you butterflies. It’s that tingling sensation of sex.” Fire Fade captures the moments when that thrill starts to wear off, as in the swelling, unguarded “Keep It Simple” and the cocksure “WTF Love Is.” As she says, “You feel a little bit uneasy. And you really want to chase that first feeling again.”
