Tove Lo’s a ‘Cool Girl’ in new summer smash

Tove Lo dropped her new lead single “Cool Girl” on Thursday ahead of an upcoming sophomore album release this year.

On the smooth house track, the Swedish singer-songwriter takes inspiration from the movie Gone Girl.

“I got the first inspiration from the Gone Girl movie,” she told Rolling Stone. “She’s gone full psycho, and she’s sitting there talking about ‘He wanted a cool girl, so I ate pizza. I drank beer. I made a size two. I didn’t give a fuck that he checked out other women.’ I was thinking about it, and it’s really true. Why do we try to be someone we’re not to make someone love us? Would you want to fake yourself for the rest of your life? That’s fucked up. Even though she’s creepy, I kind of thought it was funny that it’s just very common to see that.”

The song’s lyrics describe the “gray area” in relationships, when both people are interested in each other but not sure if it’s love. Is it too soon to commit?

“I’m totally fine with the gray area,” she explains. “That’s usually where it’s effortless. [In the song], I can tell that he’s trying to play this game with me, and I’m like ‘Yeah, go ahead. Do your thing. I’m being chill.’ But then in the bridge, I reveal that’s not what I want. I want to have a fire. I want to feel that.”
