Lykke Li streams new album 'I Never Learn' – listen Lykke Li Tickets
Swedish singer's third album features the singles 'No Rest For The Wicked' and 'Gunshot'
The Swedish singer-songwriter will release the LP, which is her third studio album and the follow-up to 2011's 'Wounded Rhymes', on May 5.
It features the songs 'Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone', the original version of 'No Rest For The Wicked' and 'Gunshot', all of which were revealed earlier this year.
Speaking previously to NME about the record, the singer 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.
Li added: "It's always about me and the guilt and the shame and the hurt and the pride and the confusion of being a woman. I always feel like I've been slightly misunderstood. As a woman you get judged for appearances or things like that I don't really care about. If anything I want to be seen as a singer-songwriter rather than a pop artist. I really feel like I've found my voice."
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)
