Tove Lo has released “Bad As The Boys”, the new single from her upcoming album Sunshine Kitty.
The breezy break-up track features an acoustic guitar and vocals from Finnish singer ALMA.
“’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 revealed.
“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”.
The Swedish chart-topper’s fourth album will be released on September 20 and features special guests Kylie Minogue, Jax Jones, Doja Cat and MC Zaac.
Recorded between Los Angeles and Sweden, Sunshine Kitty represents a new chapter for the Grammy Award-nominated, multi-platinum selling artist, marked by a reclamation of confidence, hard-earned wisdom, more time, and a budding romance.
The title is “a play on pussy power, but it’s a happy, positive way of seeing it”, Tove Lo states.
“It ties in with the lynx. This cartoon cat (featured on the artwork) is an extension of me and part of the new music. She’s super cute, but she does stupid shit like getting in fights and getting fucked up. It’s how I feel the album sounds”.
