Countdown Is On: New LP From Jens Lekman

The five-year wait is nearly over. Jens Lekman, the Swedish singer behind my favorite single from the last decade ("Rocky Dennis' Farewell Song to the Blind Girl"), is finally following up the 2007 album 'Night Falls Over Kortedala,' and that's worth celebrating. I have been meaning to mention the release of 'I Know What Love Isn't,' out Sept. 4, but I was a little bit concerned because I wasn't crazy about the first song I heard from it. After today, however, my fear has subsided. I just heard the title song, and it's so lovely and so Lekman. Here are both videos for the new songs I have heard. Give them both a look... then preorder here.
