Emotionally, Lykke Li may be repeating past mistakes, but on her latest album, I Never Learn, the Swedish singer-songwriter is definitely growing. While continuing to work with Björn Yttling (of Peter Bjorn and John), as on her first two albums, Lykke Li decided to take the helm in producing this very personal third LP. Musically, it's darker and more melancholy, and lyrically, she pulls no punches in relating the heartbreak that preceded its recording. Recently, her ability to confront private pain in public translated into a nationwide promotional tour for I Never Learn, which included a stop at KEXP to perform not only live on air but also featured as part of our Live Streaming Video series. Fans from all over watched Lykke Li and her band share the heartache in a gorgeous session live. Now you can experience it for yourself:
