Island Records artist Tove Lo today announced the title, track-listing and worldwide release date of her highly anticipated debut album“Queen of the Clouds”.
This exciting new full-length features her U.S Top 40 and Top 5 iTunes Alternative hit “Habits (Stay High),” which was also recently certified RIAA GOLD and is now approaching PLATINUM status in the U.S.
To coincide with her album announcement today, the Swedish songstress premiered a new video on RollingStone.com for her second official U.S single “Not On Drugs” alongside a string of North American tour dates. Her headlining tour – presented by VH1’s You Oughta Know -- is set to commence at the Fillmore in San Francisco on September 22nd, prior to that Tove Lo will be performing at the Sunset Strip Music Festival in Los Angeles on September 21st and All Things Go Fall Classic Festival in Washington, DC on September 13th. Her headlining tour will be making stops along the west coast, Canada, New York City (for her album release week), and winding up east in Boston on October 5th (see below for full list of tour dates). Tickets go on-sale Friday, August 22nd and will be available at www.tove-lo.com
Tove Lo first entered the pop arena earlier this year in March with the release of her critically acclaimed debut EP “Truth Serum”(Island Records) and widely appraised live performances at this 2014’s SXSW in Austin, TX. Hot on the heels of her debut single“Habits (stay high)” -- which amassed an impressive 12 million+ views on YouTube – Tove Lo went on to sell-out shows in New York, Brooklyn and Los Angeles and has since garnered more than 63 million worldwide streams on Spotify and over 11 million streams on SoundCloud with her EP closing track “Habits (Stay High) Hippie Sabotage Remix”.
Following her late night television debut on NBC’s Late Night with Seth Meyers in June, Tove Lo and her band will be making a welcomed return to the small screen tonight on TBS’ Conan at 11PM/10PM CT.
“Queen of the Clouds” was written by Tove Lo and is a unique trilogy exploring the rollercoaster ride of emotions during a passionate love affair and its ultimate demise. Broken into three-parts “The Sex,” “The Love,” and “The Pain,” “Queen of the Clouds” is a highly personal and brutally honest body of work by the 26 year old Swedish pop star. The singer/songwriter whose notoriously heartfelt no-holds-barred approach to songwriting has rewarded her fans far and wide across the globe, including fellow songstresses Ellie Goulding, Lorde and Icona Pop who have publicly praised her work via Instagram and Twitter.

"Truth Serum" EP is available now on iTunes, Amazon and Spotify.
“Habits,” is a sparkler of a debut single that plumbed the depths of post-relationship blues."
- TIME Magazine
"Truth Serum, a brutally honest account of a love story gone wrong, brought to life in epic pop anthems."
- Interview Magazine
"Although lyrically Truth Serum recalls the edgy, boundary-pushing music of rock legends like Kat Bjelland and Courtney Love, the EP supplies endless dance pop hooks, putting it more in line with Foxes or Kesha."
- VOGUE Magazine
"This unfiltered, unabashedly gritty vibe seeps through her EP Truth Serum. Stocked with bouncy beats and rowdy, sing-along choruses, every single track on the debut belongs at a house party. No matter your relationship status."
- NYLON Magazine
