Musician Jens Lekman Sings About a 3D Model of a Tumor… and It’s CatchyFebruary 8, 2017
Jen Lekman’s music is bright, often melancholy and just a little weird.
Ok, really weird.
The quirky Swede from Gothenburg is known for his conversational songs about curious life situations, from his first kiss at 19 in “And I Remember Every Kiss” to his offer to be a friend’s faux boyfriend so she can fool her father and date a woman in “Postcards to Nina.”
Good news, indie-pop fans: Lekman is back with new music and an accompanying tour.
Lekman releases “Life Will See You Now” on Feb. 17. For a taste of the album, Lekman released the song “Evening Prayer” via SoundCloud about a man who uses a 3D printer to create a model of the tumor removed from his back the winter before. Yep, it’s strange. But it’s also catchy and includes a delightful disco beat.
Lekman kicks off his American tour on Feb. 23 in Houston.
