Indies only exclusive LP is pressed on orange vinyl, limited to 400 copies

The fourth studio album from Swedish singer-songwriter, Jens Lekman. The songwriting across his albums makes it clear that he has a strong sense of conveying very personal stories, whilst retaining balance on being self-aware and pushing the depth of emotional expression. Lekman has experimented with multiple rhythms in this fourth album and has had production assistance from Ewan Pearson (M83, The Chemical Brothers, Goldfrapp).

His fourth, Life Will See You Now is a typical Lekman album in several ways: sly humor is key to its heartfelt nature; it inverts pop’s writing norm by making songs with sad concerns sound happy and songs with a happy subject sound sad; and it plays with notions of identity and the self. But, as the title suggests, it also represents a significant move forward, as if across a threshold, Life Will See You Now is the more expansive, upbeat sound of a revitalized Lekman, who is just one of many characters in his new stories about the magic and messiness of different kinds of relationships. It’s also the result of deliberate steps he took to create this fresh sound.
