“I Follow Rivers” is the second single from Lykke Li’s from her highly anticipated second album ‘Wounded Rhymes’, the single will be released on February 14th and provides a stark contrast to the first single from the album “Get Some”. Whilst ‘Get Some’ deals with themes like empowerment and role play, “I Follow Rivers” deals with a dark destructive love.
“Oh I beg you: can I follow? Oh I ask you: why not always? Be the ocean, where I unravel. Be my only, be the water.”
Like “Get Some”, the track recently stormed blogs reaching no. 1 on the hypemachine global chart in a matter of hours. Available to purchase on 7” vinyl and digitally, the single features a remix by Dave Sitek (Producer du jour and TV on the Radio band member) & a hefty remix from Magician (formerly from cosmic disco duo Aeroplane) is currently riding high in global blog charts.
Ahead of her April UK tour, Lykke will be performing a unique one off live show day of album release (Feb 28th) at Rough Trade East. This will be the only live performance until her headline tour so it’s definitely not to be missed.
Lykke Li’s new album Wounded Rhymes is set for release on Feb 28th through LL Recordings/ Atlantic Records. But you can check out the video for ‘I Follow Rivers’ below.
