Lykke Li No Rest For The Wicked Music Video

Lykke Li charts an obviously doomed romance in “No Rest For The Wicked” music video

Sad music and interracial love surrounded by jerky-sustained hatred...you can see where this is going.

Lykke Li's "Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone," the first song we heard off her new album I Never Learn, cut through with its aching minimalism, just a bleached voice and husky guitar. Now there's a new video for the orchestral "No Rest For The Wicked."

Returning director Tarik Saleh tells the story of  what flashed through my mind the minute I was invited to go tree planting in Vancouver: a tender interracial romance interrupted by hating ass white folk. Doomed, dramatic, and soundtracked by swooping "Some Things Last A Long Time" sampling pomp.

Lykke Li's new album I Never Learn is out May 6 in Canada via LL/Atlantic; pre-order it here.
