Earlier this fall, Lykke Li announced that she’d formed a new group called LIV with a few of her fellow Swedes — Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt and Pontus Winnberg, Peter Bjorn & John’s Björn Yttling — as well as the American producer Jeff Bhasker. Upon making the announcement they shared a new song, the lovely and Fleetwood Mac-esque “Wings Of Love.” Today, they’ve given us a second song. It’s a grand and searching seven-minute ballad called “Dream Awake,” and it’s absolutely devastating. Below, listen to the song.
There’s been no news of a LIV album yet, but I would welcome one.
