About the song
Give It All Up features backing vocals by Tove Lo. Ebba Tove Elsa Nilsson (born 29 October 1987), known professionally as Tove Lo (Swedish pronunciation: [ˈtûːvɛ ˈluː]), is a Swedish singer and songwriter, who has been called "Sweden's darkest pop export" by Rolling Stone. She is known for her raw, grunge-influenced take on pop music. She mainly sings the third chorus.
Tove Lo said on Instagram: "Such an honor for me to join these legends on this amazing album and tune. Getting to sing along to Simon's voice on “Give It All Up” was pretty surreal. I’m also a big fan of Erol Alkan, so I was very excited when I heard he was producing the track! It’s that kind of emotional song that keeps building in desperation and energy so you wanna dance and cry to it. My favorite kind!" (Source)
About the video
A visualiser video was released on the band's official youtube channel 20 Oct 2021, showing grainy image of someone looking out of a window. The wooden windows slats reminiscent of the several videos from the Rio album.
(yeah, I give it all up for you) We are pinned to an evening That’s running out of road As the last ray of light heads into dark If it's closure you’re craving Some message in the code To fill the empty space in with your mark (ooh) (yeah, I give it all up for you) Standing on the edge of something greater than us all Down into the heart of universes we fall Falling with the fires trailing glory on their way Know that we are heading for tomorrow today Anyway lover... what'cha think I’m gonna do? When it's all over, I’ll give it all up for you Giving up believing Giving up completely or you... (ohh) Knowing that world will keep on turning, going on And we let the night forever burn when we've gone Burning with the stars that wander lonely on their way Know that life is heading here tomorrow - today Anyway lover... what'cha think I’m gonna do? When it's all over, I’ll give it all up for you Giving up believing Giving up completely For you... (ohh-ahhh) (Yeah, I give it all up for you) (ooh) And the sun beats down on skin and ground and anything between And the moon looks down on broken vows Fills the space between us with that cold blue shine and I can’t remember how our love felt at the start no I can't remember Anyway lover... what'cha think I’m gonna do? When it's all over, I’ll give it all up for you Giving up believing (Giving up believing) Giving up completely (completely) For you.. (ohh)
