Swedish singer-songwriter Lykke Li has unveiled details of her highly-anticipated third studio album, I Never Learn. Taking inspiration from her LA surroundings where much of the record was recorded, Lykke says, "Every song on the album is a power ballad. Like one of those old radio stations. This is a slow dance; a slow burner." With song titles like ‘Never Gonna Love Again’, ‘Sleeping Alone’ and ‘Heart of Steel’, I Never Learn was inspired by a recent heartbreak and Lykke’s songwriting is all the more devastating for it.
She has just released an epic new video for the song "Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone", which you can watch on YouTube!Vance Joy On Tour Now
Vance Joy (aka James Keogh) first made a splash with his debut track, “Riptide", where within hours of its upload to Soundcloud, the infectious single hit #1 on Hype Machine’s Most Popular Chart.
Koegh wants to put his focus on establishing a connection with listeners. “When I go to a gig and I hear a song that I really like, a song that hits home to me or hits an emotional nerve,” he says, “if I could ever recreate that for someone, that would be the ultimate goal."Carleton Stone's New Album, "Draws Blood, Out Now!
