Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li recently announced, in an interview with NME magazine, that she would be releasing a new album this May. This highly anticipated third release will most likely be the last part of a sonic/emotional trilogy, explained Li. “I see my albums as a trilogy, with Youth Novels as the first one and hopefully this one as the last in this chapter.” (Her second album was 2011’s,Wounded Rhymes).
Her growing confidence as a woman and an artist will also play a big part in the new release. “As a woman you get judged for appearances or things like that I don’t really care about. If anything I want to be seen as a singer-songwriter rather than a pop artist. I really feel like I’ve found my voice.”
