Lykke Li hasn’t released an album since Wounded Rhymes, her breakthrough LP from 2011, but we can expect a follow-up this spring. Interestingly, she has described her albums as a trilogy, with this new one being the final installment. Talking to NME, she says:
I see my albums as a trilogy, with Youth Novels as the first one and hopefully this one as the last in this chapter … 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.
Before the album’s out, Li will appear in the Swedish thriller Tommy. Watch a trailer here.
