Tove Lo Releases New Track 'I Like U'

Following several SOLD OUT DIRT FEMME headline shows and appearances at Hangout Festival and BottleRock Festival, internationally acclaimed, multi-platinum selling, GRAMMY® nominated artist Tove Lo returns today with a brand-new track, ‘I like u.’

Speaking about the track, Tove Lo reveals, “I wanted to make another dance song that sonically felt like a nod to 90’s and Y2K dance music. I wrote this song with Timfromthehouse, we worked on it for months in between tours to figure the perfect arrangement. It’s not the usual pop structure but it’s perfect for this song, I think. Lyrically I’m telling the story of my thoughts the first time I saw the love of my life. They’re not clean but at least I never said any of them out loud.”

Tove will be donating a portion of her streaming proceeds from ‘I like u’ to The Trevor Project, the leading suicide prevention org for LGBTQ young people.  For more information please visit

‘I like u’ follows the release of ‘DIRT FEMME (Stripped)’, a new 7-track EP featuring raw and emotionally stripped back versions of tracks from Tove Lo’s critically acclaimed fifth studio album, DIRT FEMME, which includes fan favorites like ‘No One Dies From Love,’ ‘Suburbia,’ ‘Pineapple Slice,’ and ‘Grapefruit,’ plus a vulnerable new version of her latest release, ‘Borderline.’

Tove Lo embodies every side of her own femininity in her music. She can be powerful in one breath and lusty in the next. Her cleverness will turn into introspection just before she makes herself heard again. She fights hard and loves even harder. Tove has always spoken her mind, and it’s why she’s left an ever-expanding imprint on pop.

The Sweden-born and Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and artist made waves worldwide with her platinum-certified 2014 full-length debut, Queen of the Clouds, uplifted by the quintuple-platinum “Habits (Stay High)” and double-platinum “Talking Body.”

Among numerous collaborations, she joined forces with Nick Jonas for the platinum “Close” and Flume on the gold-certified “Say It” in addition to anthems with Alesso, Coldplay, Martin Garrix, Charli XCX, Sean Paul, ALOK,, and Major Lazer, to name a few. In the midst of sold out shows on multiple continents, she served up Lady Wood [2016] and Blue Lips (Lady Wood Phase II) [2017] before reaching another stratosphere on 2019’s Sunshine Kitty.

It landed on year-end lists from the likes of Esquire and Idolator, while Pitchfork proclaimed, “Sunshine Kitty holds some of Tove Lo’s most vulnerable writing; it’s also her clubbiest record.” Meanwhile, she garnered her second GRAMMY® Award nomination with “Glad He’s Gone” in the category of “Best Music Video.”

As a songwriter behind-the-scenes, she’s penned music for everyone from Lorde to Zara Larsson in addition to co-writing Ellie Goulding’s quintuple-platinum “Love Me Like You Do” for Fifty Shades of Grey, receiving nominations at the Golden Globe®Awards and the GRAMMY® Awards. Now, Tove realizes a new strength within femininity on a series of singles for her own Pretty Swede Records and more to come.
