Lykke Li’s return

8 Jan


Very excited for the return of Stockholm’s finest Lykke Li this year. Her new album is to be called “Wounded Rhymes”, and from what I’ve heard it’s sound will be different from her playful and innocent debut “Youth Novels”. “Youth Novels” was definitely one of my firm favourite of that year, and started a slight obsession which is never a bad thing. Lykke herself has said that the new album will have less “sugar” on it that her first, taking a darker turn and including the use of tribal, big drums. Lykke wrote on her website that she visited Jamaica and found inspiration for this album there, and there are some distinct traces of her visit in the tracks released so far.”Get Some”, the first single from the album, was released as a free download from Lykke’s website late last year. It’s suggestive and brash lyrics marked what seems to be a new direction for the singer, however her charming and sultry vocals are still retained. Here is the video for “Get Some”, and also a download link for the latest preview “I Follow Rivers”.
