Demos emerge online

Lykke Li has decided to release three demo recordings as an early Christmas present for fans.

Shifting location from Sweden to Los Angeles, Lykke Li allowed some obscure influences to filter into her second album. Recording sessions stretched for almost six months, with the songwriter taking inspiration from Alejandro Jodorowsky's 1973 film 'The Holy Mountain' and the field recordings of Alan Lomax.

The results were broadcast on 'Wounded Rhymes'. Released to near universal acclaim, the album has featured prominently in 'End Of Year' lists with Lykke Li completing a select batch of British shows.

Now the Swedish artist has decided to release three early sketches for 'Wounded Rhymes'. Available to download via her official website, you can listen to the tracks below and read a note from Lykke Li after the jump.

What is lost can be found and what is found can be lost again; VOL. 1.

I’d thought I’d give you this toput in your little players, either stick it in your ears or play itloud when the lights are low, mind weary and days rainy.

Remember; life is a process, no feeling is final.

There is no end and no beginning. Yours truly always

PS: If you like it you are welcome to spread it on those little Internet waves. Maybe send it like a little gift or a kindly flu filled kiss.

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. VOL . 1 ( !!!!!)
