Lykke Li has recruited A$AP Rocky for a new, bass-heavy version of her I Never Learn single, “No Rest For The Wicked.” Downside? It’s streaming exclusively at Beats Music, meaning you can only listen if you’ve got an account. UPDATE: Here’s a youtube stream!
Watch the video for “No Rest for the Wicked”:
Li’s forthcoming album, I Never Learn is out May 6.
As we creep closer to the May 6 release of her new album, I Never Learn, Lykke Li shares a third track from the set, “Gunshot.” Despite housing some of Li’s harshest lyrics to date, the song is actually the most upbeat piece of new music we’ve heard from the album so far. Listen to the song and check out its lyrics on this website.
Love Lykke Li but have found her newmaterial a bit dreary and sullen? Then you’ve got to check out Austrian duo Klangkarussel’s disco-y two-step remix of the normally sob-inducing “No Rest For The Wicked.” Now the song’s basically a Robyn song – you only need a lyrics sheet in front of you to cry.
Reach for the tissue box again and let’s go, because Lykke Li’s dropped the video for her new single from her upcoming album I Never Learn, and both are excruciating tearjerkers!
Watch as Lykke and her handsome tattooed boyfriend slow-dance, run though a field of tall grass, and deal with long distance, traveling, shitty jobs, and the bigotry of others. They also both have awesome shearling jackets. It’s a gorgeous, moving video, and a wonderful song to match, showing off Lykke’s peerless skill at soaring, intense balladry. We’re hotly anticipating I Never Learn; it’s out May 6th.
