Lykke Li Plots North American Fall Tour
Lykke Li announced a North American fall tour in support of her newly issued fourth LP, So Sad So Sexy. The trek launches October 5th in Washington D.C. and wraps on the 21st in Portland, Oregon.
The indie-pop singer-songwriter also booked a brief run of European dates, kicking off November 4th in London, United Kingdom and closing the 8th in Berlin, Germany. Her itinerary also includes a handful of August festival dates, including Lollapalooza and Osheaga in Montréal, Canada.
Tickets for the new North American shows go on sale June 15th at 10 a.m. local time via Li’s website. The European gigs go on sale June 13th at 9 a.m. U.K. time.
So Sad So Sexy is Li’s first studio album in four years, following 2014’s I Never Learn. The new LP includes previously issued track “Two Nights” (featuring Portland rapper Aminé and co-production from Skrillex), “Sex Money Feelings Die,” “Deep End,” Rostam collaboration “Hard Rain” and “Utopia.” She paired the latter track with a Mother’s Day-themed video utilizing personal home movie footage.
In the interim between her two most recent records, Li recorded a series of tracks with the supergroup, Liv, which also includes Bhasker, Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt and Pontus Winnberg and Peter Björn and John’s Björn Yttling. In 2017, she released a cover of pop standard “Unchained Melody,” and she recently reinterpreted Jim Croce’s “Time in a Bottle.”
