Grammy®-nominated, multi-platinum, 2 billion-streaming artist Tove Lo announces today that BLUE LIPS [lady wood phase II], the highly anticipated phase II and final two chapters of the Lady Wood Era will be released on November 17th via Island Records. BLUE LIPS will contain Tove Lo’s current single"Disco Tits" whose video, premiered earlier this month, has surpassed 4.1 million YouTube views to date.
BLUE LIPS is the intended companion to Tove Lo’s Top 10 second album Lady Wood. The completeLady Wood Story is told across each album’s 2 chapter’s – Fairy Dust and Fire Fade off of Lady Wood, and Light Beams and Pitch Black off of BLUE LIPS. The provocative, critically acclaimed album included “cool girl,” the worldwide platinum single whose video has netted over 48 million YouTube views to date. “cool girl,” was one of five songs from Lady Wood that were featured in Fairy Dust, the raw and bold 31-minute film that accompanied the album release, in which Tove Lo made her acting debut alongside “alter ego” co-star Lina Esco (Kingdom, Flaked).
Fairy Dust was followed up with last month’s release of Fire Fade, a 21-minute film again starring Tove Lo, which incorporated five additional songs from Lady Wood and closed out her Lady Wood Phase 1era in groundbreaking cinematic fashion. The brainchild of Tove Lo and Swedish director and co-writerTim Erem, the graphic Fairy Dust ignited a controversy that first led YouTube to remove the film after its premiere, only to reinstate it hours later. Fairy Dust was hailed by V magazine as “a raw, beautiful, and proudly provocative exploration of sexual desire, obsession, denial, and pain.”
Tove Lo’s RIAA platinum landmark debut album, Queen Of The Clouds (released 2014) and critically acclaimed Lady Wood have sold over 3 million global adjusted units. Queen Of The Clouds included“Habits (Stay High),” the career-catapulting 5x-platinum global #1 hit that introduced her to U.S. audiences; and the triple-platinum follow-up “Talking Body” (#3 on Billboard Pop Airplay, #12 on the Hot 100). In addition to Coldplay (“Fun”) and Nick Jonas (“Close”), Tove Lo has been the featured artist on tracks by Years & Years (“Desire”), Broods (“Freak Of Nature”), Adam Lambert (“Rumors”), Flume (“Say It”), and Alesso (“Heroes”).
Tove Lo releases the official video for her latest single, “Disco Tits.”
Directed by long-time collaborator Tim Erem (credits: Tove Lo’s “Fairy Dust;” “Moments”; Nick Jonas’ “Close” featuring Tove Lo; Rihanna’s “Work” featuring Drake; Major Lazer’s “Lean On” and more) and shot on location in the California desert, the video is a welcomed tongue-in-cheek take on a day-in-the-life-of the notorious provocateur and international superstar Tove Lo.
“Disco Tits” (out now) sees Tove Lo reuniting with The Struts, her long-time collaborators and the same production team behind “Cool Girl,” “Habits (Stay high)” and “Talking Body” and serves as the first taste of new music from BLUE LIPS [lady wood phase II] due later this year via Island Records. According toTove Lo, "Disco Tits is about losing yourself with your new found love. Naive, excited, no consequences. The happiness in the haze I'm feelin right now."
Tove Lo is currently wrapping up her 2017 North American tour dates, which includes headline shows (with support by Atlanta rapper Daye Jack), appearances at Music Midtown festival both weekends of Austin City Limits, and dates supporting Coldplay in the U.S and Canada. Stateside, Tove Lo has been touring virtually non-stop since the release of her LADY WOOD album last fall, including well-received festival appearances at Coachella, Governor’s Ball, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Osheaga, and Outside Lands.
