What’s this? Swedish artist Tove Lo has teamed up with UK producer Jax Jones on a brand-new track. Both have new albums out this month (she has ‘Sunshine Kitty’ arriving on the 20th, he has ‘Snacks’ which arrived on the 6th). And this serves as a taster for both.
What’s it like? A banger about a French one night stand that’s punctuated with cries of “ooh-la-la-la“. What’s not to love?!
What does Tove say? “I’ve had ‘House Work’ on repeat, we use it as our amp up song on tour before going on stage! I’ve wanted to work with Jax for a long time and our two days in London were some of the most fun and awesome sessions I’ve had. He played different ideas and tracks and I would just get in my zone and improvise melodies til I sang something we all loved. Writing the lyrics together was a lot of fun. ‘Jacques’ is about a one-night fling with a French dude. It’s raw and cheeky, because that’s what that night was. This is the club banger on my new album ‘Sunshine Kitty’.”
Written by? Jax, Tove, MNEK and Mark Ralph.
