Lykke Li has unveiled the Tarik Saleh-directed video for her single ‘No Rest For The Wicked‘ – watch the promo in its entirety on Live4ever by clicking on the snapshot below.
The video greets us just a short time before Lykke Li’s third album ‘I Never Learn‘ is due to succeed 2011’s ‘Wounded Rhymes‘ on May 5th, while the single is set for release a week earlier. “‘No Rest For The Wicked’ is the second song I wrote for ‘I Never Learn’,” she has explained.
“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. The vocal track, the take, is the demo. In the verse, I’m referring to myself pleading guilty but I’m referring to all of us.”
Two nights at the Village Underground in London are booked for May 8th and 9th.
