Just last month, MARINA released her fifth studio album, Ancient Dreams In A Modern Land. Right before its release, her song “Venus Fly Trap” became its fourth single. Today, “Venus Fly Trap” gets an update, featuring new vocals from Tove Lo and a remix done by Kito.
The solo version of “Venus Fly Trap” was already a standout on MARINA’s new album. The remix trades the jouncing piano line for bass and a clubby beat. MARINA sings the fist verse and chorus as before, but then Tove sings a new second verse that she penned for the track. The differences here suit the song well, adding details but also retaining its addictively ebullient sound and acerbic mood.
Side note: We’ve been waiting for a collaboration between Tove Lo and MARINA for years, so we’re over-the-moon that it has finally happened, and on such a great song!

Those four songs are now part of the Paw Prints Edition of Sunshine Kitty, also released that May.
At the end of August last year, Tove shared her children’s song “Buzz Buzz Hop Hop” for the album, At Home with The Kids. 100% of its proceeds go to the charity organization, Save the Children. Then in September, Tove was featured on the song “Don’t Say Goodbye” by ALOK and Ilkay Sencan. In February this year, she teamed up with Martin Garrix for the song “Pressure.”
Beyond music, Tove Lo is now also tiptoeing into acting. Last August, it was announced that she’ll make her acting debut in the upcoming film, The Emigrants. Based on the classic novel series by Vilhelm Moberg, this is an updated film adaptation, following the acclaimed 1971 version. Filming already took place; Tove plays the character Ulrika. The film is expected to come out on December 25, 2021.
Tove has also had updates in her personal life: Last July, she got married! She married her boyfriend of three years, Charlie Twaddle. Fans were surprised – we never heard about any engagement – but we’re happy for her!
