Jens Lekman – “Evening Prayer”

Later this month, Swedish indie-pop mastermind Jens Lekman is releasing Life Will See You Now, his first official album since 2012’s I Know What Love Isn’t. We’ve already heard lead single “What’s That Perfume You Wear?,” and now he’s premiered another new one on NPR. “Evening Prayer” is an upbeat disco-tinged number about a guy who prints a 3D model of a tumor removed from his body. “The idea of printing out something that’s as scary as a tumor into its concrete form was something that spoke to me,” Lekman explains. “There is something very liberating about that idea. I think a lot of my anxieties and fears are things that are very abstract. Of the times that I’ve been able to overcome a fear, it’s been by making it something that I can understand, that I can hold on to — just something that’s more tangible.” Listen below; the song starts about 40 seconds in.
