Lyssna på nytt material från Jens Lekman

Lyssna på nytt material från Jens Lekman

Det har gått ett par år sedan senaste albumsläppet I Know What Love Isn't men den flitige musiksnickraren Jens Lekman har inte legat på latsidan. Istället för skivor har det blivit spelningar. Men visst har han hunnit med att göra musik också. I mixtapet WWJD – eller What Would Jens Do – bjuder han på tre nya spår sammanvävt med ett par egna favoritlåtar.

För de som sett honom live senaste tiden känns säkert titelspåret igen och historien runt det. Men förutom WWJD heter de nya låtarna What's The Perfume That You Wear och I Remember. Och visst rör det sig i ett typiskt Jens Lekman-land.

Lyssna på mixtapet här nedan.

Och läs hans ord om släppet:

September 2, 2014

While travelling through midwest America some time ago I stopped at a gasstation and bought a WWJD bracelet for $1.99 and insisted that it stood for 'What Would Jens Do?'. I would look at it when I felt indecisive, think about what Jens really would do and then do the opposite of that. I thought that would be a good way to find some new paths in life, and to get away from the paths I kept taking that didn't lead me anywhere good.

WWJD is a song about regrets, learning from your mistakes, and bettering yourself. I wrote it last year, recorded it quickly and felt it didn't fit in with most of the other songs I was writing. Together with 'What's That Perfume That You Wear?' and 'I Remember' they weren't adhering to the rules I had set up for my next album but they were also too good to forget. So I weaved them in exclusively on this mixtape where they are stations on a longer journey, where loops and smaller fragments, ideas for songs and favourite songs by others swoosh by outside the window. Feel free to open that window and feel the breeze in your hair.

Yours truly
Jens Lekman
