Lykke Li’s new song “No Rest For The Wicked”

Alex Young/Consequence of Sound

Lykke Li has shared another track from her upcoming album, I Never Learn, due out May 5th via LL/Atlantic Records. “No Rest For The Wicked” is not a Cage the Elephant cover, but rather an emotional-gripping production weighed down by themes of heartache and loneliness. Still, this isn’t your prototypical sad song: the accented piano and booming chorus provide a sense of hope amidst lyrics like ”Lonely I, I’m so alone now.” Listen below.

“No Rest For The Wicked” serves as the album’s lead single following teaser track “Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone”. Earlier this week, Li also released a song called “Du är den ende”, written specifically for Swedish crime thriller Tommy, where she made her acting debut.
