New Lykke Li Album Coming in May

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.
