Lykke Li I Never Learn

Tom Breihan/StereoGum

On her new album I Never Learn, the Swedish pop singer goes grand and widescreen, filling her breakup songs up with cavernous reverb and larger-than-life sentiment. The songs are like what Nancy Sinatra might have recorded back in the day if she had a Swedish accent, and if she realized she had to spend all her summers singing for vast festival crowds. (There’s some Pet Benatar in the album’s DNA, too.) We’ve heard the early songs “Love Me Lke I’m Not Made Of Stone,” “No Rest For the Wicked,” and “Gunshot,” and now you can stream the full album at NPR.

I Never Learn is out 5/5 on LL/Atlantic.
