Lykke Li has announced a handful of new UK and European tour dates.

The Swedish star released her latest album ‘So Sad So Sexy‘ today (June 8). In a four-star review, NME said: “As always, there are chinks of light breaking through the darkness, only this time they seem all the more dazzling… This is really how you do summertime sadness.”

Li will return to the UK in November for one show at London’s O2 Academy Brixton. It is currently her only tour date scheduled in the UK at present. Afterward, she will head to Europe for gigs in Amsterdam, Paris, and Berlin.


Lykke Li will play:

London, O2 Academy Brixton (November 4)

Tickets go on pre-sale on Monday (June 11) before being made available on general sale on Wednesday (June 13). Tickets for her UK show will be available from here.

‘So Sad So Sexy’ is Li’s first album in four years and follows 2014’s ‘I Never Learn‘. She worked with the likes of Jeff Bhasker, Malay, T-Minus, and ex-Vampire Weekend member Rostam on the record. It also features a guest feature from US rapper Aminé on the track ‘Two Nights’.

The track listing for the record is as follows:
