Sweden

This May, three of Sweden's most talented women - El Perro Del Mar, Lykke Li, and Anna Ternheim - are embarking on a two week North American tour together.

SwedenEl Perro Del Mar, known informally as Sarah Assbring, will be releasing From The Valley To The Stars, the follow-up album to her self-titled US debut which won raves from fans and critics alike, on April 22nd. The album is a 16-track opus, chock-full of non-traditional folk songs that explore the world at large.

SwedenLykke Li is one of the most internationally buzzed about Swedish artists at the moment. She just recently released her critically acclaimed debut album Youth Novels (produced by Bjorn Yttling, of Peter, Bjorn, John), in Sweden and will see the single for her incredible song "Little Bit" released by Moshi Moshi in the UK this week. There will soon be US release announcements from Lykke Li.

Anna Ternheim, one of the most appreciated and accomplished Swedish solo female artists, will join the tour as a very special guest. The singer songwriter will make her US album debut with Halfway to Fivepoints, released by Decca on April 22nd.

Tickets are on sale for a May 8th show at Bowery Ballroom. Lykke Li will also be all over the place at SXSW this year. All tour dates below...
