Today marks the release of Tove Lo's critically acclaimed debut album Queen of the Clouds, out now on Island Records.

Already praised as "the Best pop album of 2014" by Stereogum and "one of the year's strongest pop releases" by Time Magazine, this impressive pop debut is already making waves in the U.S charts, debuting at #1 on the iTunes Alternative Album Charts and #4 on the iTunes Album Charts.

Her single "Habits (Stay High)" which garnered an impressive 22 million+ views on YouTube, early champions at Alt Nation and non-stop spins on Sirius Hits, continues to dominate the airwaves and charts.

Tove Lo is a graduate of Stockholm's prestigious and rigorous Rytmus Music school, a springboard for young Swedish artists like Robyn, Erik Hassle, and Amanda Mair. As a member of Max Martin and Shellback's writing collective, Tove earned her first cuts with her compositions "We Got the World" (Icona Pop) and "Something New" (Girls Aloud).

In addition to self-professed supporters Ellie Goulding, Lorde and Icona Pop, Tove Lo's online admirers also include Adam Lambert, Charli XCX, Major Lazer, Alesso, and others.

Tove Lo was recently chosen as VH1's "You Oughta Know" artist, one of Rolling Stone magazine's "10 New Artists You Need To Know" and is the current iHeartRadio On The Verge artist, among Sam Smith and Clean Bandit.

Queen of the Clouds was written by Tove Lo and is a unique trilogy exploring the rollercoaster ride of emotions during a passionate love affair and its ultimate demise.

Broken into three-parts "The Sex," "The Love," and "The Pain," Queen of the Clouds is a highly personal and brutally honest body of work by the 26 year-old Swedish pop star.

The singer/songwriter whose notoriously heartfelt no-holds-barred approach to songwriting has rewarded her fans far and wide across the globe, including fellow songstresses Ellie Goulding, Lorde and Icona Pop who have publicly praised her work.
