LL - Josh Olins

Lykke Li is coming back later this spring with her new album I Never Learn, and its first single was the sad, sweeping “Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone.” If you were hoping that the rest of the album would return her to “Dance, Dance, Dance” territory, you may be disappointed. She’s just shared a second song from the album, “No Rest For The Wicked,” and it’s just as cinematically bummed as its predecessor. The good news: Lykke Li is really good at this sort of widescreen moodiness, and if you’re in the mood for any kind of self-pity wallow, this should make for a pretty great soundtrack. Listen to the song below.

  1. Been disappointed by the tracks from this album so far. Loved Youth Novels, so I hope this one grows…

  2. This is stunning–probably the most instantly heartbreaking pop ballad to hit my ears since “Someone Like You.”

  3. this is very pleasant. maybe very good, not sure yet though.

  4. With a title like that I was expecting something more ‘Get Some’-like but this is still really nice.

  5. She’s going in the right direction, evolving from wounded rhymes, it had to be like this to end that trilogy, just perfect.
