Last week, Lykke Li announced her fourth album, so sad so sexy.
I've been a fan of Li's since the release of her amazing debut album, Youth Novels. She's only gotten better with each record, with a perfect mix of pop, indie, and electronic music.
Although it's been four years since her last record, I Never Learn, I wasn't expecting a new album from her quite yet. In 2016, she formed a band, LIV, with her partner, producer Jeff Bhasker, Andrew Wyatt and Pontus Winnberg of Miike Snow, and Björn Yttling of Peter Björn and John. They released four singles together, so I expected to get a full-length album soon. I'm more than happy to get a new solo record!
Li released two new singles, "hard rain" and "deep end", last week, as well. The new album will be released on June 8.
