"Love and pain go and in hand."
Tove Lo is still coming off the high from Part 1 of Lady Wood, which featured several gems including "Cool Girl" and "True Disaster." The electro-pop album centered around themes of drugs and partying, and sonically each song felt like an upbeat cohesive sip of water. "I would sometimes have to edit lyrics, like, '"I don't think she's going to be comfortable saying this,' she recently told the Chicago Tribune of recent writing sessions with other artists. "But a lot of the time, people wanted to write with me because they loved the honesty."
That confidence spilled over into her new song "Love In The Dark," a brooding contribution for the newly-released Fifty Shades Darker soundtrack.
"Love and pain go and in hand," she sings over a thumping beat and warbly background vocals. "Say what they want, I'm still thinking it's worth it. Little bit drunk. Tell my heart you won't hurt it. I love your lies in the dark."
