Audio: Jens Lekman, “Friday Night at the Drive-In Bingo”

July 27, 2007



Jens Lekman describes his new single thusly:

It sounds a lot like its title. Like the blood red sun in the horizon. Like the best slash worst slash best again night of your life. Like a pair of jeans you love but would never wear in public. Like a coverband playing Walk of Life in someones backyard. Like the point where sheer boredom pushes you into the great unknown. Like the country when the country wasn't cool. Like the peanuts in your coke. It's one of my finest popsongs ever in my opinion, but quite different from the other songs on my forthcoming record. Love it or hate it, regardless you're still welcome to drop by for a glass of applecider.


It is like those things. And also exactly like the above photo of Jens. Like exactly. You can buy it at his webshop and drink cider until his album Night Falls Over Kortedala comes out on Secretly Canadian October 9th.
