Lykke Li drops another music video from her upcoming album. Directed by Tarik Saleh, the visual accompaniment for “Love Me Like I’m Not Made Of Stone” is stoic with just a shot of her face as she emotionally croons the song’s lonely bare lyrics over its subtle acoustic melodies.
Her new album I Never Learn will be officially released on May 5, 2014. It was co-produced by Björn Yttling (of Peter Björn and John), Greg Kurstin, and Lykke Li herself.
Lykke Li stated about the new album:
Every song on the album is a power ballad. Like one of those old radio stations. This is a slow dance; a slow burner.
I wrote [“No Rest for the Wicked”] 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. In the verse, I’m referring to myself pleading guilty but I’m referring to all of us.
I Never Learn Tracklist:
01. I Never Learn
02. No Rest for the Wicked
03. Just Like a Dream
06. Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone
