Tove Love has shared another teaser of her upcoming album Dirt Femme, which is out this Friday, October 14. ‘Grapefruit’ follows the previously released tracks ‘True Romance’ and ‘2 Die 4’, and it comes with an accompanying video from director Lisette Donkersloot. Check it out below.
“I’ve tried to write this song for over 10 years,” Tove Lo said of the song and video in a statement. “I know I haven’t talked about it a lot in interviews or even in my music which is my most honest place. I guess I had to find the right way to share the feelings and the vicious circle of behavior I was stuck in. I’ve been free from my ED and my body issues for a very long time but they did take up too many of my teenage years. I’m not sure why I wrote this song now. Maybe the 2 years of stillness brought back memories, maybe I needed all this time I’ve been free from it to be able to look back without feeling pain. One of the many feelings I remember is needing to crawl out of my own skin. I felt so trapped in a body I hated.”
“I wanted a video that portrayed that, and Lisette and Toogie knew exactly how to create that with me,” she added. “It was honestly really hard putting myself back in that headspace but it was necessary for me. I’m gonna let the song speak for itself now.”
