Lykke Li returns next month with a new album called I Never Learn, which will be co-produced by Björn Yttling (of Peter Björn and John), Greg Kurstin, and Lykke herself. Already she's shared two sad, sweeping songs, "Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone" and "No Rest For The Wicked," and today she shared a third called "Gunshot." It may sound more upbeat, like a frosty, mid-tempo power ballad off 80's radio; but worry not, it's as dark and burdened as the rest of them: I am longing for your poison, like a cancer for its prey, it begins. Stream it here. I Never Learn is out May 5 on LL/Atlantic.
