Watch Lykke Li Cover Drake’s ‘Hold On, We’re Going Home’
Lykke Li is ending her hiatus soon when she returns from break to appear at Coachella this weekend -- and she's done a great job at hyping it up, today debuting a dreamy, ambient-leaning cover of Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home" with Vogue. Watch the performance above.
"Lykke Li is a maximalist who presents as a minimalist," Vogue wrote of the cover. "In live performance, the Swedish musician uses a monochrome set -- it’s all black everything -- that allows the audience to get lost in her aching vocals and ethereally bright-white light show."
Li also recently released a video for her song "Never Gonna Love Again," from her 2014 2014 album, I Never Learn. The video, directed by Philippe Tempelman, features the Swedish singer involved in a jarring car crash. Li returns to the stage at Coachella this weekend, and will be performing at the Mojave Tent on Friday at 7:20PM. Check out the complete Coachella schedule here.
