This song finds Tove Lo singing about her lovable imperfections:
I can get a little drunk I get into all the don'ts But on good days, I am charming as f--k.
She told Billboard magazine: "I started to use music almost like a therapist, where it's like, everything that I don't really dare to say or speak about, I can sing about."
The song's music video was shot by director Tim Erem (Major Lazer, Elliphant). The clip follows Tove Lo through a wild and intoxicated night out in LA.
She said on her Facebook page: "Dirty feet, 20 pills, broken glass, gun shots, smashed car, dragged by police and 48 hours of crying, laughing, drowning and dancing. This video takes the meaning of this song to its most extreme."
Phil Oakey recorded his vocals for "Don't You Want Me" in the studio bathroom. The recording was disrupted by guitarist Jo Callis reaching through an open window from outside to repeatedly flush one of the toilets.
