New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Global chart-topping duo Icona Pop
are back today with the official music video for their latest single, "Spa"; a new collaboration with global electronic duo SOFI TUKKER. Directed by Lauren
Dunn, the video features cameos from writer, comedian and viral internet sensation Jordan Firstman and model, activist and internet superstar, Mia Khalifa.
"If we had to be stuck in a room with four other people, it would be Aino, Caroline, Jordan Firstman, and Mia Khalifa," SOFI TUKKER (née Sophie
Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern) reveal. "That is also the group of people we'd want to be at a Spa with. That is also the group of people in the Spa video, and we couldn't be happier about it. It is totally ridiculous and over the top, like the song - on steroids. And it makes us smile every time we watch it. We hope it makes other people smile too -- and maybe indulge in some self-care while they're at it."

"Spa," out now via RECORD COMPANY TEN/Ultra Music
is an unadulterated banger from the powerhouse pairing. Speaking about the collaboration, Icona Pop's Caroline Hjelt and Aino Jawo explain, "We've been huge fans of SOFI TUKKER for a long time and doing this collaboration was really a dream. It was pure creative happiness in the studio and even though it was our first time working together it all felt so natural. This song is weird in the very best way and we hope that people can have a rave spa at home while listening to it."
SOFI TUKKER add, "There's nothing like making a song with friends we love and admire. We had so much fun in the studio with Icona Pop
making this track. We hope people can feel the joy and giddiness and ridiculousness that we all felt while making it. Even though we miss the club now more than ever, there's also never been such an important time for self-care. Put some cuces on your eyes."
"Spa" follows two massive collaborations this year for Icona Pop, including "Right Time," with Australian producer and songwriter Hayden James, which Rolling Stone said "captures the feeling of the dance floor during this time of isolation," and "I Love My Friends," the lead single off Steve Aoki's recent album, Neon Future
Their last single as a duo, the ultra-infectious "Feels In My Body" was hailed by Rolling Stone as a "feel-good party track" with Consequence of Sound lauding it as "a song searching desperately for a dance floor," and Billboard calling it "a confetti blast of much-needed fun." The song also comes paired with a music video, shot by director Gustav Stegfors and acclaimed Director
of Photography, Crille Forsberg (David Bowie, Adele, ZAYN).
Swedish chart-topping duo Icona Pop

Icona Pop, which garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Pitchfork and Rolling Stone as the duo performed on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Today Show, Good Morning America, and America's Got Talent in addition to featuring on the iconic HBO series Girls and a popular Saturday Night Live sketch. They canvased the globe on sold out tours with Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, and One Direction
and joined Tiësto for the banger "Let's Go
" in 2014. Along the way, the duo has performed alongside everyone from Avicii

as well as gracing the stages of Ultra, Tomorrowland, Mark Ronson's Club Heartbreak, and more. Since then, they have consistently filled the gap in music when it comes to upbeat, carefree, quality dance-pop.
Last year, the girls DJ'd across Europe, Asia and North America
as well as released a string of bangers including their Yves V and Afrojack
collaboration for "We Got That Cool." In addition, Icona Pop
continued their message of inclusivity, self-acceptance and positivity on the road for their WorldPride tour, culminating with a show-stopping performance at Stockholm Pride that included a special appearance from Sporty Spice herself, Melanie C.

In the Spring
of 2020 the group started live streaming daily DJ sets from their home outside Miami to millions of people worldwide and released their quarantine anthem "House Arrest
" with Gorgon City, which reached #1 on US Dance Radio.
