“Blue Lips” (Lady Wood Phase II) is the third studio album by Swedish singer Tove Lo. The album consists of two chapters, “Light Beam” and “Pitch Black”, which collectively describe the “highs, lows and ultimate demise of a relationship”. Lo considers it to be the second half of a two-piece double album, being preceded by the chapters “Fairy Dust” and “Fire Fade” from her second studio album “Lady Wood”.
Lo’s previous album, Lady Wood, was released on 28 October 2016 to positive critical reviews and fair commercial success, with it eventually becoming her highest-charting album in the United States to date. In press interviews in support of the album’s release, Lo alluded to another album of thematically similar material slated for release the following year that was tentatively titled Lady Wood: Phase II. In early 2017, Lo began the Lady Wood Tour in further support of the album, and during press interviews she said she was working on new material to be included with the portion that was already recorded during the Lady Wood sessions. The Blue Lips track “Bitches”, then titled “What I Want for the Night (Bitches)”, was previewed through Lo’s short film Fairy Dust in October 2016 and a live version was released through Spotify in November 2016. Lo also previewed the track “Struggle” (then titled “The Struggle”) during her performance at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival in April 2017. During the months leading up to the album’s release, Lo said that thematically Blue Lips would be a “dramatic” and “highly emotional” sister to Lady Wood, and it would have two contrasting chapters: “Light Beam” and “Pitch Black”. The album’s official title was announced in conjunction with its lead single “Disco Tits” on 7 September 2017.
