Impending EP and Tour From Jens Lekman

In my humble opinion, Jens Lekman recorded the top song of the past decade. So, it's kind of a big deal that my favorite Swede has announced a new five-song EP due out on Sept. 20. That's the art you see above. Lekman has taken his sweet time producing new material. His last album, 'Night Falls Over Kortedala' was way back in 2007, and we will have to continue waiting for that elusive full-length LP. I don't care. I'll take what I can get. Besides, his track record of stellar EPs is without peer. Here's a look at the upcoming 'An Argument With Myself' tracklist, as well as tour dates. Yep, there will be a brief American tour, and he's coming to my town. Yippee! Oh, and check out the best song of the last decade, too. You can order that EP here.
