Video Premiere: Tove Lo - Habits (Stay High)

In a desperate attempt to get over her ex, Tove Lo loses herself to a life of hard partying involving heavy drinking and getting high in the graphic visual for the Swedish sensation's breakthrough single entitled "Habits (Stay High)". The song was written by Tove Lo in the immediate aftermath of her breakup and, according to the singer herself, is based on her own personal experiences. The track was produced by The Struts, Jakob Jerlström and Ludvig Söderberg. It was originally released as Tove Lo's second single "Habits" on March 25, 2013 and later re-released on December 6, 2013 under the title "Habits (Stay High)" due to the popularity of a remix of the song titled "Stay High" featuring Hippie Sabotage. It is featured on both Tove Lo's debut EP 'Truth Serum', released on March 3, 2014 and her debut studio album 'Queen of the Clouds', released on September 30, 2014 via Island Records.

In the Motellet-directed music video, Tove Lo reenacts the story portrayed in the song's lyrics. She wakes up after a night of partying and despite a really bad hangover she goes bar-hopping with a group of friends to get wasted again and give herself to a lifestyle of dangerous drug use and habitual debauchery.

Lyrics to Habits (Stay High) by Tove Lo

I eat my dinner in my bathtub
Then I go to sex clubs
Watching freaky people gettin' it on
It doesn't make me nervous
If anything I'm restless
Yeah, I've been around and I've seen it all

I get home, I got the munchies
Binge on all my Twinkies
Throw up in the tub
Then I go to sleep
And I drank up all my money
Dazed and kinda lonely

You're gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I'm missing you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

Pick up daddies at the playground
How I spend my daytime
Loosen up the frown,
Make them feel alive
I'll make it fast and greasy
I'm numb and way too easy

You're gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I'm missing you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh

Staying in my play pretend
Where the fun ain't got no end
Ooh
Can't go home alone again
Need someone to numb the pain
Ooh

Staying in my play pretend
Where the fun ain't got no end
Ooh
Can't go home alone again
Need someone to numb the pain

You're gone and I gotta stay
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
High all the time
To keep you off my mind
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
Spend my days locked in a haze
Trying to forget you babe
I fall back down
Gotta stay high all my life
To forget I'm missing you
Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh
