Lykke Li new single 'No rest for the wicked'

Lykke Li's track 'No rest for the wicked' from third album 'I never learn'

From the greatly anticipated third album, Lykke Li debuted her new single "No rest for the wicked".Lykke Li described "Like one of those old radio stations. This is a slow dance; a slow burner'.

Heart rendering piano and resounding drums teamed with caressing, echoey vocals from Lykke give this track a seductive melancholy.

Lykke admits, ‘I wrote it in Sweden when I was packing up my shit, and I’d just gotten out of a relationship and it was a horrible time.I just had the hurt, shame, sadness, guilt, longing.”

The beauty of Lykke Li is she manages to convey emotional turmoil that everyone can relate to and somehow you walk away feeling uplifted.

Watch out for  'No rest for the wicked' and 'Love me like I'm not made of stone' from the album 'I never learn' out on 5th May on LL Recordings/Atlantic Records.

 Unsurprisingly after announcing her US, UK and European tour, the dates quickly sold out, including the two dates at Villageunderground in London.

However, there is hope yet! UK fans will still be able to see Lykke at Latitude Festival on July 20th.
