Last week, Jens Lekman announced that he would be posting one song a week for the next year: “While working on my next album, I will sit down once a week, write down my thoughts, turn them into a song and share it with you directly. Think of these little songs as postcards. Little greetings from me to you.” He’s shared the second postcard in this project, and it sounds a lot more like a fully formed song than the first one did. It samples African composer Abdullah Ibrahim’s song “Mamma.” You can listen to it below.
We won’t be posting all of these, but you can keep up with Lekman’s postcard series here.
