“EEEEEEEEEEK” is what I said yesterday when Lykke posted the release of her new video “Gunshot.” Mostly because is it my favorite song of her new album “I Never Learn,” and I have been listening to it on repeat lately. Words can not express the impact her music has had on my life the past few years. I also can not describe how seeing her live made me feel other than the use of the word “magical” She’s such a moving performer, half way into her second song I found myself crying. And I’m not one for public displays of emotion. I don’t think I’ve ever had an artist touch my heart in the way that Lykke has album after album, song after song.
So below, you will find “Gunshot.” If you can not relate to this song or moved by it, you need a soul check. I can’t wait to see her again in October at Radio City Music Hall.
