Lykke Li

Story by Jack Foley

SWEDISH singer-songwriter Lykke Li has unveiled details of her highly-anticipated third studio album entitled I Never Learn.

The follow up to 2011’s critically-acclaimed Wounded Rhymes will be available on May 5, 2014, through LL Recordings/ Atlantic Records.

Co-produced by long-time collaborator Björn Yttling, Greg Kurstin and for the first time by Lykke herself, I Never Learn is the third and final part in a trilogy. Taking inspiration from her LA surroundings where much of the record was recorded, Lykke commented: “Every song on the album is a power ballad. Like one of those old radio stations. This is a slow dance; a slow burner.”

Following her appearance at the recent inaugural BBC 6Music Festival in Manchester, UK and European tour details have also been unveiled.

Kicking off on April 24, 2014, in Stockholm, Lykke will play Brussels, Berlin, Munich, Cologne, Utrecht, Paris and conclude with two dates at Village Underground in London. Tickets will be available to purchase here.
