Watch Lykke Li’s Intimate Performance of ‘Gunshot’
Everything we’ve been hearing and seeing about Lykke Li‘s upcoming album, ‘I Never Learn,’ pretty much says it’s going to be a major downer. Not that that’s necessarily a bad thing. We like a little heartbreak once in a while. Now we have another peek into the brokenhearted singer’s repertoire with a stripped-down and intimate performance of ‘Gunshot.’
The Swedish singer-songwriter performed the new track at H&M Life. With the camera tightly focused on Li’s face, the emotion easily pours from the performance, much like the sadness she exhibits in her latest video for ‘No Rest for the Wicked.’
“And a shot goes through my head and back / Gunshot, can’t take you back,” she sings in the song, which you can watch above.
You can also check out the new remix of ‘No Rest for the Wicked’ by Austrian electro duo Klangkarussell below. Their quick beats and dance-floor groove almost make you forget how tragic the song, and the story behind it, really is.
All of this gets us even more in the mood for the release of ‘I Never Learn,’ which comes out on May 6.
