Swedish singer-songwriter, Tove Lo is entering legit pop star territory with her chart-storming “Habits.” It’s a cathartic tale of nursing a broken heart by binging, going to sex clubs and throwing up in the tub with an infectiously anthemic power pop chorus.

After this tour, she’s heading out on the road again to open for Katy Perry.
