May 31, 2019

Swedish pop singer Tove Lo is known for her brutally honest lyrics, her grunge influence, and her silvery vocals. After making a name for herself with summer jams like “Habits (Stay High),” “Talking Body,” and a feature on Coldplay’s “Fun,” Tove Lo is continuing her honest looks into love and loss.

New single “Glad He’s Gone” comes as a the light at the end of the tunnel after losing a relationship that did nothing more than weigh a friend down.

“When they finally break up, it’s kind of like a celebration because you get your partner in crime back,” she explains of the break up anthem. Lyrics tell the story of watching a friend endure a toxic relationship from the sidelines. All she can do is offer support and guidance as they navigate their way through the disagreements and miscommunications.
