In an interview with NME, Lykke Li revealed that she’s planning on releasing her third studio album in May. “I see my albums as a trilogy,” she says, “with Youth Novels as the first one and hopefully this one as the last in this chapter.” NME says that a “recent romantic split” has been an influence on the songwriting, and Lykke Li adds the she feels “slightly misunderstood,” explaining: “As a woman you get judged for appearances or things like that I don’t really care about. If anything I want to be seen as a singer-songwriter rather than a pop artist. I really feel like I’ve found my voice.”
In addition to making music, Lykke Li has been doing some acting. She’s in a crime thriller called Tommy, due in March. You can read more about it here and watch the subtitled trailer below.
