Here's your advice from Jens Lekman for the day - on a recent American tour, he bought a WWJD bracelet at a gas station in the midwest and decided the famous acronym actually stood for "What Would Jens Do?" He promptly thought about the question whenever he was having trouble with a decision, and promptly did the opposite of what he thought he should do. This might not work for everyone, but it's supplied us with some pretty good music - a track inspired by the experience, "WWJD," figures on a new mixtape Jens has put together alongside two other new songs, "What's That Perfume That You Wear?" and "I Remember," and some of his favorite jams. You can stream the mixtape and check out its tracklist below. Keep in mind - Jens revealed in a brief note that accompanies the mix that these three songs are outtakes from a forthcoming LP, so stay tuned.
