With the heat of summer overhead, Tove Lo has returned with her shimmering new single "Cool Girl."
The breezy cut, which serves as the first preview of the singer's next album, was inspired by the Ben Affleck film Gone Girl. "It’s the moment she goes from being a victim to a psycho," the said of the song's origins.
Lorde apparently got to hear the track in advance, declaring earlier this week it was the "pop song of the summer." And at a crisp three minutes and 19 seconds, it's built for radio and many replays.
The song arrives as Tove Lo will hit the road next month supporting Maroon 5 on their North American tour.
