TOVE LO RELEASES NEW VIDEO FOR “TRUE DISASTER” TODAY, THE SECOND SINGLE FROM CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED AND RECENTLY RELEASED SOPHOMORE ALBUM LADY WOOD



"Tove Lo faces a relationship's inevitable implosion with a shrug on ‘True Disaster.’ ‘Give zero fucks about it, I know I'm gonna get hurt,’ she sings, before inviting the pain: ‘come on.’ The track channels 1980s pop touchstones like the Miami Vice soundtrack with an imperious, slow-rolling beat, heavily armored synthesizers and a gummy, battering ram hook.” - Rolling Stone Magazine


“'I’m gonna get hurt’... That's on standout ‘True Disaster,’ which begins as Marr-like feedback haze and turns into one of the year's best pop songs, a perfectly wrought instrument of self-laceration.” - Pitchfork

---------------------------

Critically acclaimed, Grammy®-nominated multi-platinum artist Tove Lo, who has surpassed Spotify’s 1 billion-stream plateau, releases a new video today for “True Disaster". “True Disaster” is the second single off of her brand new album LADY WOOD (released October 28th via Island Records), which scored a Top 10 albums chart debut.

“True Disaster” is one of five tracks from LADY WOOD that are featured on the raw and bold short film Fairy Dust, in which Tove Lo makes her acting debut alongside “alter ego” co-star Lina Esco (Kingdom, Flaked). In addition to “True Disaster,” Fairy Dust features “Influence,” “Lady Wood,” “cool girl,” and “Vibes”. Fairy Dust is the brainchild of Tove Lo and Swedish director and co-writer Tim Erem. Fairy Dust, “a raw, beautiful, and proudly provocative exploration of sexual desire, obsession, denial, and pain, not entirely unlike what we experience today” (V magazine) ignited a storm that led YouTube to remove the film from view (after its album release day premiere worldwide), only to reinstate it hours later.

Tove Lo’s graphic finale in the film “must be seen to be believed” (wrote V), enacted over “What I Want For the Night (Bitches),” an unreleased track destined for LADY WOOD’s follow-up LP. As NME quickly reported, “Tove Lo took to Twitter to address the film being pulled. She wrote: “So I did release #FairyDust today but it’s been taken down cause of @YouTubes policies on sexual content. HA. #imnotevennaked.”

At the same time, venues are rapidly selling out for Tove Lo’s first North American tour dates of 2017. The 11-city “Lady Wood Tour” of the U.S. and Canada opens February 6th at Showbox SoDo in Seattle, and wraps up at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC on February 24th. Tickets can now be purchased at www.tove-lo.com. Tove Lo will also be joining the lineups in seven U.S. cities for select iHeart Radio Jingle Ball Dates. (Please see all tour dates below.)

LADY WOOD is the long-awaited successor to Tove Lo’s landmark debut album of 2014, the RIAA platinum Queen Of The Clouds. The album included “Habits (Stay High)” the career-defining 5x-platinum global #1 hit that introduced her to U.S. audiences, and has surpassed 1 billion Spotify streams; and the triple-platinum follow-up, “Talking Body” (#3 on Billboard Pop Airplay, #12 on the Hot 100). Tove Lo has also been the featured artist on tracks by Nick Jonas (“Close”), Coldplay (“Fun”), Years & Years (“Desire”), Broods (“Freak Of Nature”), Flume (“Say It”), and Alesso (“Heroes”).

Teen phenomenon Billie Eilish has revealed a stunning new dance performance video for her debut smash “Ocean Eyes” today. Originally inspired by a dance recital for Billie to be choreographed by her teacher, “Ocean Eyes” soon took on a life of its own when it was uploaded onto Soundcloud and then suddenly went viral worldwide. More than 20 million combined streams later and praise from influencers, tastemakers and critics from around the world, Billie Eilish is now on the fast track to becoming one of the world’s most exciting artists to come out of the U.S.

Now, to honor the single that ignited everything for her earlier this year, the Los Angeles based artist decided to create and release a dance performance video for “Ocean Eyes” for her fans. "Like music, dance has always been my passion; a way to express how I feel. Billie tells i-D Magazine. “We originally recorded Ocean Eyes for a dance recital to be choreographed by my teacher Fred. We produced it with a tempo and arrangement that would fit lyrical/contemporary dance thinking through every moment.” She continues. “I ended up being injured and wasn’t able to dance for a long time, so after all that has happened with our music this year it is especially exciting to be able to do this video. Working with Fred and other dancers from the studio and just finally getting to dance again is amazing!”

Compelling in all its elegance and simplicity, and giving new life to one of the most loved songs of 2016, watch the new video for “Ocean Eyes” here. “Ocean Eyes” is available now on all digital platforms, along with her other breath taking release “Six Feet Under.”

Having played a handful of sold-out shows on the west coast this summer, Billie Eilish plans to release new music very soon and tour the world in 2017. More details to come very soon.

KATE NASH DROPS SURPRISE TRACK AND VIDEO “MY LITTLE ALIEN” CONFIRMED TO STAR IN JENJI KOHAN NETFLIX ORIGINAL “G.L.O.W”


Multi-talented, award-winning British artist, actress and activist Kate Nash has released a brand new track and official video titled “My Little Alien.”

Shot in the Californian desert and staring her very own pet pooch Stella, “My Little Alien” is a loving tribute to her rescued “fur-baby” and as the holiday season approaches, comes with a friendly reminder to “adopt not shop” when it comes to rescuing a four legged friend.

“’My Little Alien’ was written after a trip to Rachel, Nevada, where I saw a UFO for the first time.” Explains Nash. “I took my rescue pup on the trip and I realized she is my best friend and although I have never met an alien she is like my little alien in a way. When I rescued her from a man in a coffee shop who wanted 20 bucks to get off drugs, she saved me at a time when I needed it most. Sometimes it feels like we're both from another planet. This song is about loving the strange.”

On the video, directed by Tyler Monsein, Nash continues. “We wanted to recreate the feeling of being the nomads that we are. Neither of us quite fit into the boxes we should but when we are together it makes sense. So we got back on the road in a vintage Chinook and drove to Area 51!'” Watch the official video for “My Little Alien” here and listen to the track on iTunes, Apple Music and Spotify from today.

In other news, Kate Nash has been confirmed to play Rhonda is the upcoming Netflix Original series “G.L.O.W.” Produced by award winning Jenji Kohan (Weeds, Orange is the new Black), “G.L.O.W” (aka Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) was created by Liz Flahive (Homeland) and Carly Mensch (Orange Is The New Black) and is a 10-episode comedy inspired by the real story of the 1980s female wrestling league.

Today, New Zealand artist Gin Wigmore premiered her official video for her latest single ‘Dirty Mercy,’ the first track and video from her highly anticipated forthcoming album due for release in 2017.

The video premiered today via Billboard Magazine and can be viewed here. “Dirty Mercy” is now available on all digital platforms.

Gin explains, “I made sure I came out swinging with this one. I had always wanted to write a song with this sort of energy. A little trashy, kinda pissed off, whilst still retaining my love for a solid melody. Dirty Mercy is a song that really represented where my head was at when I first began this venture into my next album.”

“Dirty Mercy” was written and recorded in LA and was co-written with Marc Orrell (Dropkick Murphys) and Steve Rusch (Blood To Bone, Metallica, Kendrick Lamar). As per her award winning third album "Blood to Bone", which featured the stunning singles “Written In The Water” and “New Rush”, Gin once again stepped into the role of co-producer of her new release working with Grammy nominated producer/engineer Rusch.

The accompanying video was directed by New Zealand actor and director David de Lautour (Westside) with Gin writing the treatment. This is David’s first ever music video after being at the helm of various other web-series, short films and sketches.

“Because this new album is a new direction and look for Gin she wanted to do something different for the video. She was keen for a narrative clip that was a juxtaposition to the Gin Wigmore sound we all know and love. We were all excited about doing something that had a cool positive message for young girls which would let them know they don't have to fit into any box or mold,” says David.

Shot on location in Los Angeles, the kiwi connection was still very strong with a New Zealand artist, director, producer as well as notable make-up artist Amber Dreadon involved. Amber took on the intricate task of reproducing Gin's tattoos on female actor Addyson, stenciling and hand painting to get the finished result.

The release of "Dirty Mercy" follows Gin’s surprise addition to former President Barack Obama’s summer playlist which was tweeted out in August by the White House. The eclectic playlist included Gin’s 2011 track ‘Man Like That’ along with an array of artists such as Jay Z, Prince, Courtney Barnett and Chance The Rapper.

The release of Gin Wigmore’s third album "Blood To Bone", was met with praise around the world including a nomination for Best Live Act at the 2015 MTV EMA’s and the award for Best Female Artist at the 2015 NZ Music Awards.


In 2013, she released "Gravel & Wine", which spawned hit singles "Man Like That," "Black Sheep" and "If Only" and in 2009 the release of her debut album "Holy Smoke". Both albums reached #1 and multi-platinum status back home in New Zealand.
