Lykke Li announces 10th anniversary reissue of debut album ‘Wounded Rhymes’

The digital reissue lands this week, with physical copies later this year

Lykke Li released her seminal album ‘Wounded Rhymes’ 10 years ago and is giving the album the deluxe reissue treatment to mark the date.

The Swedish singer-songwriter’s follow-up to debut ‘Youth Novels’ was released in 2011 and will be reissued this year in both digital and physical formats.

A digital reissue, which will feature unheard demo versions of the album’s biggest hits including ‘Jerome’, ‘I Follow Rivers’ and ‘Youth Knows No Pain’, is coming this Friday (July 16). It will also feature Tyler, the Creator’s remix of ‘I Follow Rivers’, coming to streaming services for the first time.

Late last year, Lykke Li made her return with a new single called ‘BRON’. The song, sung entirely in Swedish, was written by Li in collaboration with fellow Swedes, artist Little Jinder and composer Ludwig Göransson, most famous for his work with Childish Gambino.

It was the singer’s first new music since her ‘Still Sad Still Sexy’ EP in 2019, which served as an extension to her 2018 album ‘So Sad So Sexy’.

Reviewing ‘Still Sad Still Sexy’ upon its release, NME wrote: “As its title suggests, this six-track EP is essentially an extension of Lykke Li’s excellent 2018 album ‘So Sad So Sexy’. Featuring two remixes, two tracks in an “alt version” and a couple of new songs, it’s inevitably a bit of a ragbag collection.

“But thanks to Li’s strong songwriting and clarity of vision, it’s also well worth a listen, especially if you enjoyed her stellar contributions to Mark Ronson’s recent ‘Late Night Feelings’ album.”
