Lykke Li has revealed ‘No Rest For The Wicked’. See above to hear the song now.
‘No Rest For The Wicked’ is the second song to be taken from her new album ‘I Never Learn.’ 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 follows ‘Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone’, revealed earlier this year. A full tracklisting for the album can be found below.
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.
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.”
The ‘I Never Learn’ tracklisting is as follows:
‘I Never Learn’
‘No Rest for the Wicked’
‘Just Like a Dream’
‘Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone’
‘Never Gonna Love Again’
‘Heart of Steel’
