Everyone’s favorite Swedish indie songstress Lykke Li took to Australia’s Triple-J radio recently to perform some songs from her fantastic latest release, Wounded Rhymes. Li also took advantage of her airtime to deliver an awesome cover of classic blue-eyed soul jam “Unchained Melody” – armed with only an acoustic guitarist, two backup singers, and a lyric sheet, she manages to effortlessly deliver her own simple but heartstring-tugging spin.

All Lykke really needs to make you swoon though is her voice – it’s truly breathtaking here, standing out on its own with little distraction. You’ll probably want to give this a few listens.
