Lykke Li | Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone

So who else is as excited as me by the return of Lykke Li? Following on from 2011's critically-acclaimed 'Wounded Rhymes' the Swedish songstress will release her third studio record 'I Never Learn' on 5th May 2014 through LL Recordings/Atlantic Records. Co-produced by long-time collaborator Björn Yttling, Greg Kurstin and for the first time by Lykke herself the new album looks set to be the most personal and intimate effort yet as Li goes on to say "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 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. In the verse, I’m referring to myself pleading guilty but I’m referring to all of us."

Take a listen to the raw and sincere Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone above as the Tarik Saleh directed clip shows a stark and unembellished silhouette of Lykke.
