Lykke Li has said that her new album will 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.

The Swedish singer-songwriter appears inside this week's NME, which is on newsstands or available digitally now. She features as part of a rundown of 100 albums to look forward to in 2014 containing exclusive studio reports and photos.

Speaking to NME about the new album, Li says her third album will be a natural follower to 2007 debut 'Youth Novels' and her second album, 'Wounded Rhymes'.

She said: "I see my albums as a trilogy, with 'Youth Novels' as the first one and hopefully this one as the last in this chapter."

A recent romantic split has informed the song writing on Li's new album, which as yet does not have a title.

She 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."

Li also claims her third album will establish her place in the music industry.

She admitted: "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."
