Single Review: Tove Lo – Glad He’s Gone

Tove Lo drops first track of upcoming new album
Tove Lo is about to kick off her brand new era. The Swedish pop star had her big break back in 2014 when her single ‘Habits (Stay High)’ became a massive worldwide hit. She dropped her debut album and followed it up soon with two related records. In 2016 she dropped Lady Wood while Blue Lips (Lady Wood Phase II) followed a year later. We haven’t heard more solo material ever since, but she has been collaborating with other artists quite a bit. She recorded with Major Lazer, Charli XCX and more recently Aazar and Swae Lee. Solo Tove is back with ‘Glad He’s Gone’, the first single of a project that has something to do with a Sunshine Kitty.

‘Glad He’s Gone’ is a new direction for Tove Lo. The rhythm is more laidback and the vibe is slightly more breezy than the icy, sometimes dark synth pop she often serves. The melodies are still spot on though and there are some catchy vocal effects in the chorus which playfully reminds us of the popular Hippie Sabotage Remix of her break out hit. Tove described the song to be about the moment your ‘bff’ finally lets go of the ‘fuckboy’ in her life. It is an anthem about friendship and wanting the best for the people close to you, while at the same time wanting to spend as much time as possible with them. A relatable bop with a summer vibe which we will be playing every time the sun comes out!
