Lykke Li – “No Rest For The Wicked”

By Tom Breihan / March 19, 2014

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.

I Never Learn is out 5/6 via LL/Atlantic.
