Lykke Li – “Sadness is a Blessing” (Acoustic)


Lykke Li popped by BBC Radio 6 to perform the second cut from her forthcoming Wounded Rhymes, “I Follow Rivers,” as well as an acoustic version of a previously unheard tune called “Sadness Is A Blessing:” a heart-rendering love song about being sad.

It sounds quite fitting as an acoustic ballad and will be quite interesting to hear what the Swedish songbird does it with it on the studio version. Here, Li's woebegone and unconditionally beautiful vocals are the main feature, accentuated with lyrics like “sadness you're my boyfriend, sadness I'm you girl.” After what feels like an eternity of waiting, Wounded Rhymes is out on March 1st, via her own LL Recordings.
