Lykke Li's new album, so sad so sexy, is out today. Here's a bit of Andrew's review from Notable Releases:

A lot of the hip hop and R&B that’s currently on the radio isn’t just popular, but creative and groundbreaking, and Lykke Li isn’t limiting herself to the increasingly creatively stagnant “indie” world she came from. “When you label yourself as indie, it’s very much about what you don’t like, what you don’t do: ‘No, I won’t ever Auto-Tune my voice.’ Here, I was like, ‘Fuck it. I want to try something new.’” she said in that same Billboard interview. It works out really well, and it turns out that Lykke Li’s voice is perfect for this kind of stuff. There are times where she clearly takes on a more noticeably R&B cadence, but there are also times where she sings in the same uniquely soaring way she always has, and it’s a thrill to hear such a familiar voice in such an unfamiliar setting.

Lykke has also just announced a fall North American tour, and the NYC show happens October 9 at Terminal 5. Tickets for that show go on sale June 15 at 10 AM.

All dates are listed, along with a stream of the new album, below.
