After teasing us with a cryptic video and leaving us near breathless from our growing anticipation for new music, Lykke Li shared two stupendous new tunes last month, including a collaboration with Rostam named ‘hard rain’ and a song named ‘deep end’ produced by some very talented artists. They were our first tastes off new album ‘so sad so sexy’, out June 8th on RCA. Just as we hoped, the beloved Swedish indie/art pop artist has followed the songs up with a brand new treat over the weekend. Watch the heartwarming video for ‘utopia’, directed by Clara Cullen. Actual footage of a young Lykke Li and her mom, as well as clips of her with her son are utilized in the video. Both her intimate video and her sanguine song are incredibly moving, especially with Mother’s Day having just passed. Despite its soft glow, there’s a dark melancholy to be found in ‘utopia’, especially towards the end… It’s a truly familiar timbre for fans of Lykke Li’s music. Pre-order new album ‘so sad so sexy’, here.
