With her album I Never Learn due out May 5, Lykke Li has started unveiling new music. It’s been three years since Wounded Rhymes came out, and there were rumblings that Lykke had shifted her focus to modeling and acting after endorsement deals with Levi’s and a part in a Swedish crime thriller came to light. But today we get “No Rest For The Wicked,” a power ballad of epic proportions that shows the Scandinavian songstress hasn’t lost a step.
It’s a classic Lykke mix of heartsick lyrics (“Lonely, I’m so lonely”) and empowering melodies that absolutely soar during the chorus. Stream “No Rest For The Wicked” below:
