Speaking about Dirt Femme, the singer said: "It is about me and my relationship with my femininity. How it’s helped me and hurt me. It’s about my body, my fears, my dreams.
"Songs on this album will contradict each other, will probably upset some of you, will make you wanna dance, cry, fuck and drive your car really really fast. It’s extremely personal as always which is why it’s so hard to describe in just a few words. It’s all my feelings, thoughts and questions put together in under 50 minutes with no answers.
"But I know that I always feel relief and connection when a song just speaks to my emotions without telling me what to do about them," Tove Lo added. "I hope this album reaches that little secret pocket in your heart where all the real stuff is hiding."
The new album will consist of 12 tracks, with features from First Aid Kit, S.G. Lewis, and Channel Tres.
Tove Lo recently revealed she has started her own music label with mtheory - Pretty Swede Records - with its first release being Lo's recent single 'No One Dies From Love'.
"It’s amazing," she smiles. "I have a lot of freedom, and it’s been fun to work with mtheory. This will be the first release under my label. I’m a pop girl, but I like to make things weird and be in full control of the whole vision. This is the perfect way to put out exactly what I want."

Mere days ago, the internet was sent into a frenzy after Lo appeared as a guest judge on Ru Paul's Drag Race, and fans finally learnt the proper pronunciation of her name. The singer addressed the chaos, telling her fans to think "Voulez vous, Tove Lo", however she also acknowledges she sometimes uses the international pronunciation to "make sure people know who the fuck I'm talking about."
