Lykke Li announces new album, so sad so sexy, shares “deep end” and “hard rain”: Stream

The Swedish indie pop singer returns in June with her fourth studio album

Lykke Li

Lykke Li will soon return with a brand new album. Titled so sad so sexy, it’s slated for a June 8th release through RCA Records.

The forthcoming effort follows Li’s impressive I Never Learn from 2014 and marks her fourth full-length overall. It also comes after the formation of Swedish supergroup LIV, which featured members of Miike Snow and Peter Bjorn & John, as well as renowned producer Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Mark Ronson).

To build up anticipation for the 10-track project, Li has shared a pair of new songs. “deep end” features production from Malay, T-Minus, and Bhasker, while “hard rain” boasts ex-Vampire Weekender Rostam behind the boards. Both see Li venturing into more hip-hop-infused, pulsating pop. Take a listen below.
