Swede songstress Lykke Li graces the cover of SPIN’s March issue, leading the pack of 11 new artists featured in our Next Big Things package for 2011. Her success this year will be hinged on Wounded Rhymes, her excellent second album, which transforms heartbreak into a chilling sonic spectacle. Listen to the album below, before its official March 1 release!
“Li’s new album, Wounded Rhymes, is equal parts seething ice princess and lonely snowwoman, vacillating almost track by track between fury and despondence over a scotched relationship,” Sean Fennessey writes in SPIN’s eight-out-of-10 review. “The dual objectives — weep for me, fear me — collide throughout, creating a dicey, but gripping album.”
