In just three weeks, Tove Lo will release her upcoming 4th album, Sunshine Kitty. Following the singles “Glad He’s Gone” and the Alma-assisted “Bad As The Boys,” our third preview of the album comes with a little help from Jax Jones. The two teamed up for their new single, “Jacques.”
Although Tove is Swedish and Jax is English, their new song takes its influences from France. It’s an electro-house song about a one-night stand with a French man. While Tove plays herself in the lyrics, Jax takes on the character of Jacques. The flirty words – complete with exclamations of “oh la la la” – match the vibe of the music perfectly. In contrast to Tove’s previous two singles, this one sounds more like her previous work.
In a press release, Tove described working with Jax Jones and the inspiration behind “Jacques”:
I’ve wanted to work with Jax for a long time and our two days in London were some of the most fun and awesome sessions I’ve had. He played different ideas and tracks and I would just get in my zone and improvise melodies til I sang something we all loved. Writing the lyrics together was a lot of fun. Jacques is about a one-night fling with a French dude. It’s raw and cheeky, because that’s what that night was. This is the club banger on my new album Sunshine Kitty.
