lykke li I Never Learn (CD, £3.95)
Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li releases her third studio album – the follow up to 2011’s critically-acclaimed “Wounded Rhymes”. Co-produced by long-time collaborator Björn Yttling, Greg Kurstin and for the first time by Lykke herself, “I Never Learn” is the third and final part in a trilogy. Taking inspiration from her LA surroundings where much of the record was recorded, Lykke commented, ‘Every song on the album is a power ballad. Like one of those old radio stations. This is a slow dance; a slow burner.’ With song titles like ‘Never Gonna Love Again’, ‘Sleeping Alone’ and ‘Heart of Steel’, “I Never Learn” was inspired by a recent heartbreak and Lykke’s songwriting is all the more devastating for it.
