Jens Lekman

Playlist: New Sounds of 2017 Vol II

Welp, here’s to more amazing music from 2017! It just keeps coming.

 

First single from Jens Lekman: “What’s That Perfume You Wear?”

Swedish musician Jens Lekman is set to release his latest album, Life Will See You Now, on February 17th. In contrast to his previous record, I Know What Love Isn’t, the new record is rumored to be more upbeat, full of “disco, calypso, samba and bossa nova.” The perfect introductory track was released earlier this month titled, “What’s That Perfume You Wear?” Lekman thanks Ralph MacDonald for the steel pans sample, which contributes a bulk of the fun rhythmic quality to the song.

The track came with a video produced by Christopher Good who chose to represent love as a vase. About the video/track Good says:

“You’re trying to recreate it but can’t quite get the pieces to fit right anymore; it’s all a jumble now and won’t hold water any longer. A danceable nightmare of heartache.”
