Lykke Li in 'Jerome'

?Ever had the urge to be in a blacked-out room with Lykke Li as she sings her pleading, heartbreaking tune "Jerome" right to your face? You're in luck: the Swedish singer-songwriter has released a star video for the song, off her album Wounded Rhymes, and it boasts a revamped, acoustic take on the tune. Watch it here.

Li's latest album chronicles her getting over a broken relationship, and her emotional despondency rings through in this clip: it's just the recent SPIN cover star (backed by a band) in a darkened room as she howls the tune's urgent lyrics. And the new version morphs the track from a psychedelic, girl-group-style anthem into a spare, gothic-country ballad. Chilling.

Watch It: Lykke Li, "Jerome (Acoustic Session)"
