This March, after a few years penning songs for artists like Icona Pop and Girls Aloud, Tove Lo unleashed her debut Truth Serum EP, a six-song collection featuring the rising, gold-certified "Habits (Stay High)." Thanks to that success, her debut full-length, Queen of the Clouds, will be released September 30th in the United States on Island Records. Now, "Not on Drugs," the album's second single, has received a music video (premiered above) that finds the singer dancing in a white room that is filled with both computerized animation and colorful, real-life smoke bombs.
"I choked on the paint, the smoke made me half blind and here is my three-minute trip that shows the intensity and weirdness I feel when falling in love," Tove told Rolling Stone, via e-mail. "The main theme we had in mind while making this video was 'What just happened?' It was quite amazing making something with the happy piece of my heart this time!"
Just before Queen's release, the singer will also begin her first North American tour, which (except for the festivals and Canadian dates) will be presented by VH1's You Oughta Know series. See the dates for that tour and the tripartite tracklist for the album below.
