Somewhat to the chagrin of the Missus, i have a bit of a thing for Lykke Li. (OK, to be honest, in all likelihood, my wife is far more disturbed by the fact that i’ve turned our guest room into a Star Wars shrine, but work with me here.)
As fortune would have it, Ms. Li has dropped a “tiny shiny” new single and accompanying B-side, and i’m here to tell you, it’s something else.
Teaming up once again with Björn Yttling of Peter Bjorn and John, the title track is percussion heavy, much more in-line with the live performances she’s given over the past couple of years than Youth Novels might have led one to believe. If this is what the new CD, due early next year, is going to sound like, i am one happy camper, i tell you what. B-side, Paris Blue, would be the pre-requisite ballad.
With lines like, “Don’t pull your pants until I go down,” and, “I’m your prostitute. You gon get some,” i do believe we have another winner.
