    First single "Glad He's Gone" is coming next Friday it seems - album is called Sunshine Kitty. Why? It was "inspired by an episode of Girls, the title shares its name with an accompanying animated Lynx—“Lo”in Swedish—who joins Tove on this trip...", because of course. :side-eye:

    Confirmed tracks from the album and some descriptions:

    Glad He's Gone - "it's the pep talk you give your girlfriend when she's going through a break up"
    Sweettalk My Heart - about "the lies a lover tells you that you both want to believe"
    Bad As The Boys - 80s sound, about her first crush on a girl
    R U Gonna Tell Her - neon production and Latin rhythms, it's "club ready"
    Anywhere You Go - hypnotically-assured
    Jacques - wild Eurodance elation, "proves she still likes to rave"

    I have a suspicion this album might be really uncharacteristically upbeat, but I want at least one ice cold banger which wreaks of misery, depression and pills

    that is a proper great video. at first i was wondering how they justified spending so much money (i imagine) flying her all over the place but then it just comes together and i actually like the song now so good job, tove lo.

    Those girls have absolutely nothing in common with Tove or the sound of this single. They make tropical pop. I don't understand the comparison.

    Final track pre-album, which is out Friday - not really feeling this one yet



    just snatched tickets for Brussels in March :disco: she was pretty great when I saw her in '17 (I think) despite the awful crowd

    I really like that. Jacques is the one I care for least of the songs released but other than that they're all good.

    It's a bit lacking in that department but I enjoy it more than Blue Lips. In fact there are literally two MAX Martin tracks on the album and they're both a bit shit.

    It's just so muted and underwhelmeling.

    I do really like Stay Over though, and Really Don't Like U is the best thing here. But it's her least essential album.

    I've persisted with this (moreso than with the Charli album honestly) and it's rewarded me by growing a fair bit.

    10 Glad He's Gone
    09 Bad As the Boys
    08 Sweettalk My Heart
    09 Stay Over
    07 Are U Gonna Tell Her?
    06 Jacques
    08 Mateo
    08 Come Undone
    07 Equally Lost
    10 Really Don't Like U
    06 Shifted
    07 Mistaken
    09 Anywhere U Go

    It's not her masterpiece but it's really solid with enough highs to keep me coming back.

    sweettalk my heart has really grown on me and i see it's doing much better than really don't like you. poor chartlie poisonouge.

    strange that it's the 4th song i've kinda sorta liked from the album and i'm still not pressed to give it a whirl.

    Queen of the Clouds is easily her weakest. I’m firmly in the camp that Lady Wood and Blue Lips are both great.

    the album is really good. not her best or most substantial, but deceptively catchy and fully listenable start to finish without skipping - it absolutely breezes past.

    Really Don't Like U is the big keeper from this era for me. I thought it would be Glad He's Gone, but that's faded quite a bit.

    It is a really good pop album. Sweettalk My Heart is my favourite, and Mateo probably the pick of the album tracks.
