Tove Lo dropped her new single ‘Borderline’! The upbeat track has been co-written with none other than Dua Lipa. The song is Lo’s first after ‘Dirt Femme’, her last album that was released in October.
According to the press release, “‘Borderline’ is a song about being on the edge of love. The drama you cause inside yourself and with another person if you feel insecure. You test them. This song has existed for a long time and I’ve always felt it was incredibly special so getting to release it now has sort of a full circle feeling. Maybe that’s why it was the perfect song for Annie’s revenge video. I hope my fans love the bizarre love story that unfolds in this video, it’s my favorite kind of thing!”
Lo also tweeted a snippet of the song and sent “tons of love to Dua Lipa for trusting me with this baby”.
“This is the very first song we wrote together and the very start of our friendship so this feels extra special,” she continued. “Now everybody hold your breath…”
Dua Lipa also posted an Instagram story and said, “The first day Tove Lo and I got into the studio we wrote this song and I am so excited for it to come out into the world!!!”
They have been writing songs together for a while now! Lo was credited on Lipa’s track ‘Cool’ from ‘Future Nostalgia’. Lo also opened for Dua Lipa as part of her European headline tour.
