Lykke Li – “Gunshot”

I Never Learn, the new album from the Swede-pop goddess Lykke Li, looms, and she’s already shared two songs, the twin dirges “Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone” and “No Rest For The Wicked.” “Gunshot,” the third song she’s shared from the album, is still something of a ballad, but it’s more of a midtempo ’80s power-ballad type of thing, with cavernous drums and a chorus that will rip you right open and steal your soul. It rivals Twin Shadow’s “To The Top” as the best Phil Collins song I’ve heard this week, and it’s streaming at this site, which also features the song’s lyrics or watch it below (via Pitchfork).

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