Listen to Lykke Li’s new single ‘No Rest for the Wicked’

By Josh Haggis


Lykke Li has unveiled her new single No Rest for the Wicked.  Listen below.

The track is a trailer for the Swedish singer-songwriter’s third album I Never Learn – and will be available to download in the UK from April 21.

Speaking about the single, Li said in a press release: No Rest For The Wicked is the second song I wrote for I Never Learn. I wrote it in Sweden when I was packing up my shit, and I’d just gotten out of a relationship and it was a horrible time. I just had the hurt, shame, sadness, guilt, longing.”

The album is Li’s follow-up to 2011’s critically-acclaimed Wounded Rhymes, whose breakout single I Follow Rivers was covered on Glee.

Speaking about the upcoming album, due for release on May 5, Li has previously said: “Every song on the album is a power ballad. Like one of those old radio stations. This is a slow dance; a slow burner.”

The album has been co-produced by the singer’s long-time collaborator Björn Yttling, Lily Allen producer Greg Kurstin and Li herself.
