Lykke Li Drops ‘I Never Learn’ Album Trailer
The breathtaking Lykke Li has graced our eyeballs with a stunning graphic preview of her upcoming album, ‘I Never Learn’, set to follow her 2011 release, ‘Wounded Rhymes’.
The sneak peek is filled with a magnificent swelling strings section that could make you feel as though you have just lost your true love on a French battlefield. The longing and darkness of the music drifts into the clip as a haunting homage of what is set to come from the Swedish beauty.
The clip opens as an ivory clad woman crunches through dry leaves, casting a scene of wild abandonment as apocalyptic winds thrash about. Plastic covered couches line an overtly modern dwelling, and just for a moment you may ask yourself if this is the same lounge room Justin Timberlake used to film his ‘Cry Me A River’ clip.
This thought will quickly fade as you follow a dark and handsome man down his lonely path, only to be graced by the glistening eyes of our heroine- casting a melancholy shadow upon what is to come.
‘I Never Learn’ is out on May 5. Judging by this clip; we are in for a romantic, evocative, and extremely beautiful record from the ever so talented LYKKE LI.
