Saturday Song Break: Lykke Li

Lykke Li, one of my favorite Swedish musical exports, is releasing a new album in May! This is exciting, because there had been minor reports of her possibly taking a hiatus from music for a long while. But, at least as far as 2014 is concerned, she's gonna be churning out at least 10 new songs! The lead single "Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone" which was very recently released shows Lykke as somber as she's ever been. It's a pretty simple concept; she's standing on a rotating platform looking like a forlorn statue ("made of stone") using only her eyes to convey the emotion. She's not even mouthing the words. Don't believe me? WATCH: Personally, I love the song. It easily fits in with her existing discography without sounding like a retread of old territory. Worth a listen, for sure. I'll be posting more about the album before launch day, so expect to find all sorts of pre-order information right here on #nerdjizz!
