“When love turns its back on you it’s nice to know there’s a world out there that doesn’t give a shit about your problems.” That’s our favorite Swedish singer-songwriter/former ukulele-strapped troubadour, Jens Lekman, telling the story of “The End of the World Is Bigger Than Love,” a gorgeous (and free) new song he released today via his website.
Sure, his last album, Night Falls Over Kortedala, came out 3 years ago, but between this new tune and his flawless summer waltz mix, there’s plenty of hope that a follow-up LP will grace our ears again. (I, for one, care about your problems, Jens. Keep singing about them!) Grab the MP3 and stream Lekman’s heartbreaking song below:
