Aw yeah! The wait is over. Jens Lekman is back with a new song called ‘The End of the World Is Bigger Than Love’. In his words: “It’s a song of hope. When love turns it’s back on you it’s nice to know there’s a world out there that doesn’t give a shit about your problems. That forces you to keep your head held high and move on. A world that is fragile and beautiful. Maybe it can sound cold to some of you, but let me make it clear that I believe in love, I just get so wrapped up in it sometimes that I need to put it into proportion. It’s something you have to do a lot when you’re Jens Lekman”. Listen and download below.

Swedish crooner Jens Lekman made a new great mix for the days of summer. In his words: “I got the opportunity to remix my favourite song from Au Revoir Simone’s beautiful album ‘Still Night, Still Light’ . While listening to the song I realised how nice it’d be to transform their straight 4/4 time synthpop into a whirlwind waltz or maybe a barcarole if you will. It took a long time to chop up all the syllables and the tiny tiny samples, but I think the result got the song into a whole swirling new direction. While making the remix, my mind started working in 3/4 and 6/8 time. I started looking around for tracks in that time signature to make a mix, I wasn’t intending to but I couldn’t help it. It was all a big swirl. After a while I heard it everywhere. In soul ballads, in polyrhythmical african pop, in old movies. In the ocean waves tumbling in against the shore, in the beat of a lovers heart. One two three, one two three…”

While we are waiting for his new album to drop sometime soon this year or maybe early next year, Swedish Jens Lekman did this orchestral remix (typical Lekman) for Au Revoir Simone’s song ‘Shadows’. This could make the wait look shorter. Until then…we’re moving on. We hope you’re coming with us…
