Swedish singer Tove Lo is my new obsession. She’s not only an incredible song writer, having written songs for people like The Saturdays, Icona Pop, and Ella Fyre, but she’s also been singing her own songs for the last couple of years as well – songs that are beautiful, and with a voice that’s phenomenal.
Now she’s finally released her debut album, ‘Queen of the Clouds‘ in the US, with a UK release date in early 2015. The album is split into three sections, ‘The Sex’, ‘The Love’ and ‘The Pain’, mirroring Tove Lo’s belief that there are three stages of a relationship, and includes this amazing song and her 2013 single – Tove Lo’s ‘Habits (Stay High)’ — which is my Repeat Rotation Video today.
The song is about a break up Tove herself had, and how the only way she felt she could get through it and over it was to be high pretty much all the time. Not that she recommends it, but she felt like she had to write the song honestly – art imitating life, it seems.
Listen to Tove Lo’s ‘Habits (Stay High)’ below and, if you’re playing it as your Repeat Rotation Video today, play it loud, with headphones and eyes closed – as always.
