Title track video from forthcoming album out September; handful of UK tour dates to support release

Swedish songster Jens Lekman has a new album, I Know What Love Isn't (artwork above), set for release on September 3 via Secretly Canadian, and here's a first taster - watch the video for the title track below.

While no doubt too twee for many, it's typically sweet and filled with quotable tidbits, and boasts a flute solo to make Belle and Sebastian feel envious.

Lekman's playing a month-long European tour, which is only making three stops in the UK - here are the dates:

SEPTEMBER
Wed 19 - Ruby Lounge, Manchester
Thu 20 - Hackney Empire, London
Fri 21 - The Haunt, Brighton
