UPDATE: Tove Lo also unveiled the official tracklist for Sunshine Kitty, which includes collabs with the likes of Kylie Minogue, ALMA, Jax Jones and Doja Cat. Check it out below.

Tove Lo is feeling extra generous this week. The 31-year-old already announced plans to reunite with her “Bitches” collaborator ALMA and join this week’s New Music Friday lineup. The duo’s new anthem “Bad As The Boys” arrives in just a few hours. Based on a preview, it sounds like it will be on par with Tove’s criminally underrated “Glad He’s Gone.” And she hopped online with some more good news ahead of the drop. Today (August 1), she confirmed the release date for Sunshine Kitty. Her first album since 2017’s Blue Lips arrives September 20.

The Swedish pop star also unveiled an animated version of the official cover art. On it, she poses alongside a cartoon-esque cat that preens for the camera. She spilled some tea about the collection in the caption. “It’s filled with songs about naive love, teen crushes, future fears and being a vulnerable weirdo,” Tove wrote. “I’m so proud of this album, and so grateful to everyone involved!” Previously, the hitmaker provided some insight into the title. “[It’s] a play on pussy power, but it’s a happy, positive way of seeing it,” she explained.

“This cartoon cat [featured on the artwork] is an extension of me and part of the new music. She’s super cute, but she does stupid shit like getting in fights and getting fucked up. It’s how I feel the album sounds.” You can pre-order Sunshine Kitty here. I don’t know about you, but I’ll be counting down the days until this arrives. While we wait, check out her announcement post below.
