So this is the new single everywhere, right? Yes – finally! It’s by far our favourite track from her incredible ‘Queen of the Clouds’ album. And not just the best song she’s ever done – but quite possibly the best song to come out of Sweden over the last 12 months. Here’s what we wrote about it initially last summer.
And now it has a video? Released last Friday and already to have been viewed by over a million people around the world.
What happens in it? Lots of couples on a beach getting it on and then calling it off. All while Tove Lo takes all her clothes off and gives us some serious hair-ography for the all important “BOMB BOMB BOMB BOMB” bits.
What else has ‘Timebomb’ been up to? Well last week someone made an AMAZING mash-up of ‘Timebomb’ with Lady Gaga’s ‘Gypsy’. And you can watch that below too. See also when Tove’s ‘Talking Body’ was mashed up with Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s ‘Relax’.
Anything else? We realised today that Tove Lo is an anagram of To Love. Are we the last in the world to have discovered this, or is this a new development for everyone else as well?
