Lykke Li Swedish singer’s arty, tense ‘Sadness Is a Blessing’

The video for Lykke Li's new single "Sadness Is a Blessing" is arty, tense and just a bit funny, like the song itself. The clip, directed by filmmaker Tarik Saleh, starts off with the Swedish singer in a silent staredown with veteran actor Stellen Skarsgård. Once the music kicks in, Li emotes and dances in a fancy dining room full of very uptight and stoic people who seem embarrassed by her presence. It's a beautifully shot video, and something that wouldn't work with just any pop starlet. Li's performance is subtle, lively and totally captivating.
