Lykke Li Laments on 'Kimmel'

Marc Hogan/Spin

Lykke Li's third album, I Never Learn, is where the arty ingenue of 2008's Youth Novels and the force of nature of 2011's Wounded Rhymes becomes pop's high priestess of heartbreak. And few audiences are more primed to respond to pop heartbreak than people watching a teen-focused romantic comedy-drama shrouded by looming mortality. "No One Ever Loved" is the Swedish singer born Lykke Li Zachrisson's contribution to the soundtrack for the upcoming film The Fault in Our Stars, which also features Charli XCX's jubilantly thunderstruck "Boom Clap." Watch Zachrisson's somber, twangy performance of "No One Ever Loved" for Jimmy Kimmel Live! above, and below see her take on I Never Learnstandout "No Rest for the Wicked." When you're through, also see our coverage of the "No Rest for the Wicked" video and the album's stark, devastating "Love Me Like I'm Not Made of Stone," plus revisit SPIN's 2011 Lykke Li cover story.
