Lykke Li – No Rest For The Wicked

[wide][/wide] Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li has unveiled the video for her chest-thumping single No Rest for the Wicked, taken from her forthcoming third album, I Never Learn.

A beautifully shot film about intimacy and separation, the video evokes the harsh emotional subject matter of the new album, which Li wrote after a breakup.

“No Rest for the Wicked is the second song I wrote for I Never Learn,” says Lykke Li. “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.”

Following on from the critically acclaimed album Wounded Rhymes in 2011, I Never Learn will be released on 5 May.
