Tove Lo is a true disaster in her new album film Fairy Dust.
The Swedish singer filmed a Lemonade-style movie to illustrate the dark side of her brain with director and creative partner Tim Erem. It features songs from the first chapter of her forthcoming album Lady Wood, which co-stars actress Lina Esco (Free the Nipple) as her self-destructive alter ego, EW reports. “I realized I spend my life chasing rushes, whether it’s love or being on stage or drugs,” she says. “[The album is] like every different stage of that rush.” “Fairy Dust” focuses on the initial rush of attraction and that spike of adrenaline, while the other half, “Fire Fade,” explores the wreckage after the flame burns out.
“My worry after the first record was that I wasn’t going to be able to be as personal and open because I was scared because of all the reactions,” she says. “I got a lot of love for being honest and being raw and vulnerable and admitting to mistakes, but there were also a lot of mean comments that my mom always seems to keep finding on the internet.”
