"Froot" is a song by Marina and the Diamonds from her third studio album. It is the title track of Diamandis's album Froot. Marina revealed on her twitter that "Froot" would be released on her birthday, October 10th.

On November 5, the single cover was revealed when Spotify added "Froot" to their platform.

Starting November 11th, "Froot" has been made available to download along with the album pre-order as the first "Froot of the Month", and the Froot was a grape. On the same day, Diamandis released the official music video, a month after the original release.


Background and compositionEdit

Originally entitled "Pamplemousse", Diamandis wrote the song on a "dreary" January day, deciding to write something "weird and upbeat and cheerful" to contrast the weather.[1] Although Diamandis named the parent album after the track "Froot", she confirmed that it was one of last songs from the album that she wrote.[2]

Described by Diamandis as "the most eccentric song on the record", "Froot" is a disco-inspired in terms of production.[3] She went on to call it "a very positive song" about happiness, readiness to love, and "living the best life that you can.". This was an idea she had never before talked about in her music.[2]

Most people assume it is about about somebody ready to lose their virginity, but Diamandis stated that "I think a lot of people assume it's about sex, but it's not. Strictly. Most of it is not. It's really about being ready for happiness, and being ready to love somebody, and being fully-realised as a person. I like that it's a really positive message to start on. I needed that. It would've been easy to go with something like "Happy", which is a ballad and kind of stripping everything back to its bare bones, and I felt like that would be predictable."

VideosEdit

A music video for "Froot" was released the same day as the single release on November 11, 2014. As of April 2017, the video has over 7,400,000 views.

LyricsEdit

Like with "I'm a Ruin", there are two versions of the song.
  Intro.  
Froot

La la la la la la
Juice
La la la la la la

  Verse 1.  
I've seen seasons come and go

From winter sun to summer snow
This ain’t my first time at the rodeo

  Verse 2.  
Nature ain’t a fruit machine

She's gotta keep her credits clean
Good things come to those who wait
But I ain’t in a patient phase

  Interlude.  
It's summer time and I hang on a vine

They’re gonna make me into sweet red wine
Hanging around like a fruit on a tree
Waiting to be picked, come on cut me free

  Pre-chorus.  
Come on fill your cup up

Looking for some good luck
Good luck, good luck to you
Hanging like a fruit
Ready to be juiced
Juiced, juiced

  Chorus.  
Living La Dolce Vita

Life couldn't get much sweeter
Don't you give me a reason
That it's not the right season
Babe, I love you a lot
I'll give you all I’ve got
Yeah, you know that it's true
I've been saving all my summers for you
I've been saving all my summers for you
Like Froot, Like Froot

  Verse 3.  
Baby, I am plump and ripe

I'm pinker than shepherd's delight
Sweet like honeysuckle late at night

  Verse 4.  
Leave it too long I'll go rot

Like an apple you forgot
Birds and worms will come for me
The cycle of life is complete

  Interlude.  
I'm your carnal flower, I'm your bloody rose

Pick my petals off and make my heart explode
I'm your deadly nightshade, I’m your cherry tree
You're my one true love, I’m your destiny

  Pre-chorus.  
Come on fill your cup up

Looking for some good luck
Good luck, good luck to you
Autumn, I’ll be gone
Birds will sing their mourning song
Song

  Chorus.  
Living La Dolce Vita

Life couldn't get much sweeter
Don't you give me a reason
That it's not the right season
Babe, I love you a lot
I'll give you all I’ve got
Yeah you know that it's true
I've been saving all my summers for you
I've been saving all my summers for you
Like Froot, Like Froot

  Middle eight.  
Oh my body is ready

Yeah it’s ready, yeah it’s ready for your love
Oh my branches are heavy
Yeah they’re heavy, yeah they’re heavy

  Chorus.  
Living La Dolce Vita

Life couldn't get much sweeter
Don't you give me a reason
That it's not the right season
Babe, I love you a lot
I'll give you all I’ve got
Yeah you know that it's true
I've been saving all my summers for you
I've been saving all my summers for you
Like Froot, Like Froot

  Outro.  
Living La Dolce Vita

I’m in love
Living La Dolce Vita
I’m in love
I’m in love

  Intro.

She's gotta keep her credits clean
Good things come to those who wait
But I ain’t in a patient phase

  Pre-chorus.  
Come on fill your cup up

Looking for some good luck
Good luck, good luck to you
Hanging like a fruit
Ready to be juiced
Juiced, juiced

  Chorus.  
Living La Dolce Vita

Life couldn't get much sweeter
Don't you give me a reason
That it's not the right season
Babe, I love you a lot
