She’s also announced UK and EU tour dates for later this year.

Ahead of the release of new audiovisual album ‘EYEYE’ on 20th May, Lykke Li is sharing second single ‘HIGHWAY TO YOUR HEART’.

The new record sees Lykke reuniting with previous collaborator Björn Yttling and was recorded in her Los Angeles bedroom. “I wanted the record to have the intimacy of listening to a voice memo on a macro dose of LSD,” she said.

Of the album’s visual component, she added: “We wanted to capture the beauty and grandeur of a three-hour European arthouse movie, while making something native to modern media. The intention is to deliver the full impact of a movie in sixty seconds on a phone screen, which is where most of our emotional experiences happen now anyway.”

Check out ‘HIGHWAY TO YOUR HEART’ below.
