Lykke Li announces trio of UK shows (2014)
Story by Jack Foley
LYKKE Li has announced three UK and Ireland shows as well as details of a new single.
The dates, in support of her latest LP I Never Learn, take place at the Hammersmith Apollo in London on November 13, Manchester’s Albert Hall on November 15 and Vicar Street in Dublin on November 16, 2014.
The new single, meanwhile, will be Gunshot and here’s what the singer had to say about it: “I wrote Gunshot straight after a meditation and the lyrics just came out of violent words, ‘I’m longing for your poison like a cancer for its prey, I shot an arrow in your heart where you waited in the rain’.
“So this is also the moment in a relationship where you’ve f**ked up and some things you can never take back. I think that a lot of people can relate to that moment where it’s just gone forever.”
Tickets for the UK shows will go on general sale on Friday, June 20, with a pre-sale on Wednesday, June 18 for those who sign up to the singer’s mailing list.
Li will also play at Glastonbury and Latitude festivals this summer.
