LYKKE LI Tickets
After the US tour announcement of last week, including a show at Radio City in NYC, Lykke LIe has announced the I Never Learn UK tour which includes a headline London show at Hammersmith’s Eventim Apollo on 13 November.
UK fans will still be able to catch her prior to this at Latitude Festival and Glastonbury.
Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li (AKA Li Lykke Timotej Svensson Zachrisson) has also unveiled details of her highly-anticipated third studio album titled 'I Never Learn'. The follow up to 2011’s critically-acclaimed 'Wounded Rhymes' will be available on May 5th through LL Recordings/ Atlantic Records.
Co-produced by long-time collaborator Björn Yttling, Greg Kurstin and for the first time by Lykke herself, 'I Never Learn' is the third and final part in a trilogy. Taking inspiration from her LA surroundings where much of the record was recorded, Lykke commented, ‘Every song on the album is a power ballad. Like one of those old radio stations. This is a slow dance; a slow burner.’
It’s hard to believe that it was only 6 years ago that Lykke’s pop confessional 'Youth Novels' catapulted her into the limelight. Her debut established her as one of those rare gems: an authentic artist, who deals only in raw emotional truth. The album topped many end of year lists and allowed her to travel the globe showcasing her stripped down, percussive and frenetic live show to rapturous applause.
2011’s 'Wounded Rhymes' cemented her position as a mainstay in the musical landscape. With its unique mix of 60s girl group vocals, tribal drums fills and a new, more self-assured and powerful vocal performance from Lykke herself, her follow-up secured her more accolades (Swedish Grammy Awards for Best Artist and Best Album), high profile TV appearances (Late Night with David Letterman, Later…with Jools Holland, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno) and cover features (Spin, Fader, Notion)
And last summer, she became an official chart-topper with The Magician remix of ‘I Follow Rivers’ going number 1 across Europe and eventually selling over 1.2 million units worldwide. She also featured on ‘I’m Waiting Here’ from David Lynch’s 2013 album The Big Dream.
