Tove Lo Collaborates with Jax Jones for New Song ‘Jacques’

Following the announcement of her highly anticipated forthcoming album ‘Sunshine Kitty,’ due on September 20 on Island Records [PRE-ORDER], Tove Lo has released a brand new track, this time with Polydor/Interscope artist Jax Jones. ‘Jacques’ is out everywhere today. Listen HERE.

Available on both Tove Lo’s forthcoming full-length ‘Sunshine Kitty’ (out September 20th) and Jax Jones’ album ‘SNACKS’ (out September 6th), ‘Jacques’ was born out of a mutual admiration for each other’s work, with the collaboration cooking for quite some time. Detailing a fun and flirty exchange told by Tove Lo about a rendezvous she once had with a French guy called Jacques. The alluring anecdote and sultry pop vocals are underpinned by an underground heavy house beat and catchy bassline making nod to Jax’s deep house roots.

Speaking of the single Jax said “It’s one of my favorite new tracks from my album SNACKS (Supersize) because it alludes back to my deep house background. If you liked my first song ‘I Got U’ then this is for you. It’s got a fire bassline which in order to create I channeled the late great Jerry Barnes. So if you like it funky. Check it out”.

Speaking of the single Tove Lo said “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”.

Recorded between Los Angeles and Sweden, Sunshine Kitty represents a new chapter for Tove – who has amassed more than 5 billion combined global streams –  marked by a reclamation of confidence, hard-earned wisdom, more time, and a budding romance. The title is “a play on pussy power, but it’s a happy, positive way of seeing it,” Tove Lo states. “It ties in with the lynx. This cartoon cat (featured on the artwork) is an extension of me and part of the new music. She’s super cute, but she does stupid shit like getting in fights and getting fucked up. It’s how I feel the album sounds.”
