Listen to our exclusive stream of new album I Know What Love Isn't

Jens Lekman’s new album, I Know What Love Isn’t, is set for release on September 3 via Secretly Canadian. It’s the Swedish singer-songwriter’s third album, and continues to match his uncanny knack with a good pop song to his literate, infinitely quotable lyrics. We’re pleased to be able to offer you the exclusive global premiere of the album - stream it below:

Lekman’s also supporting the album’s release with an extensive tour, hitting Europe in September and then moving on to the US in October. Here are the UK dates:

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

And if all this wasn’t enough Lekman goodness for you, have a watch of the Marcus Söderlund-directed videos for two cuts from the album. Here’s ‘I Know What Love Isn’t’:
