Lykke Li unveils video for 'No Rest For The Wicked' - watch

The song comes from her new album 'I Never Learn'

Lykke Li has unveiled the video for her single 'No Rest For The Wicked'.

Click above to watch the Tarik Saleh directed video for the second song to be taken from her new album 'I Never Learn.' The Swedish singer-songwriter will release the LP, her third studio album and the follow-up to 2011's 'Wounded Rhymes', on May 5. It follows 'Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone', revealed earlier this year. A full tracklisting for the album can be found below.

'No Rest For The Wicked' is released on April 21. Speaking about the song, the singer commented: "'No Rest For The Wicked' is the second song I wrote for 'I Never Learn'. 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 vocal track, the take, is the demo. In the verse, I'm referring to myself pleading guilty but I'm referring to all of us."

Speaking previously to NME about the record, Li said it would be the third part in a trilogy of her albums, claiming that the album covers the "intense period" of being a woman in her 20s. "I see my albums as a trilogy, with [2007 debut] 'Youth Novels' as the first one and hopefully this one as the last in this chapter," she said.

The 'I Never Learn' tracklisting is as follows:

'I Never Learn'
'No Rest For The Wicked'
'Just Like A Dream'
'Silverline'
'Gunshot'
'Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone'
'Never Gonna Love Again'
'Heart Of Steel'
'Sleeping Alone'


Lykke Li will also play two live dates in London as part of a wider world tour in May.

Lykke Li will play:

London Village Underground (May 8/9)
