AceShowbiz – Tove Lo has turned to the man behind Billie Eilish‘s success to produce her latest tracks.
The “Glad He’s Gone” hitmaker recruited Billie’s brother FINNEAS to produce her new songs, “Bikini Porn” and “Passion & Pain Taste the Same When I’m Weak”.
Both tracks dropped on Friday (January 17) and the video for “Bikini Porn” also features FINNEAS, who is currently completing the “Bad Guy” singer’s James Bond theme for “No Time to Die“.
Revealing how he got involved, Tove Lo tells WENN she sent a raw version of “Bikini Porn” to him, adding, “I admire him so damn much”, and asked if he would be “down to produce it”.
“He gave it the grit and weirdness and bopness (sic) it needed. Such an honour working with him!!”
FINNEAS also enjoyed the collaboration, adding: “Sometimes you can tell instantly that a songwriter or singer is going to have a lasting impact immediately and that’s exactly how I’ve always felt about Tove. Writing with her proved me right. Bar for bar, she’s brilliant and Bikini Porn was exactly the song I dreamed of producing for her.”
Tove Lo received a 2019 Grammy Award nomination for Best Music Video for her “Glad He’s Gone” promo, directed by Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia.
