New Lykke Li Video – “Breaking It Up” (Alternate Live Version)

The earlier Sarah Chatfield-directed video version of “Breaking It Up” found Bon Iver and Heidi Klum collaborator Lykke Li making like Erotica-era Madonna. In this alternate live version, shot by Christian Haag in one take, she has her Late Night megaphone on hand, but no shirtless dudes rubbing up against her. As she says about the light bulb-swinging clip, while prepping for her US tour:

Enjoying my last minutes of freedom with receipts and bills. Everyday life. What’s nicer than cleaning and wiping floors is my new video for “Breaking It Up.” It’s as unpolished as it gets. Shot in one take live in Stockholm. If you didn’t like my eye shadow in the other one you will love this I hope.

What if you like both?
