Lykke Li: Hard Rain

In 2015 Swedish singer/songwriter Lykke Li announced she was taking a break from performing and until recently it seemed she had all but retired. After hinting at new music, today she has released two songs from her upcoming album So Sad So Sexy. The record (her fourth LP) is set for release in June and the two tracks out so far, “Hard Rain” and “Deep End,” reveal a greater hip-hop influence thanks to their trap-like beats. That said, these songs are distinctly Lykke Li, with her beautiful melancholy vocals drenching the tunes.
