New Lykke Li: "Love Me Like I'm Not Made of Stone"

Off of what Lykke Li has admitted will be a new release full of power ballads, her first single "Love Me Like I'm Not Made of Stone" already fits the mold. The raw plea - accompanied by a video of Lykke rotating, stunned and alone, on a turntable - is exactly what the song title suggests. A simple strumming guitar and vulnerable vocal performance paint the picture of a woman asking to be loved despite her brokenness and faults. While it diverts from the Swedish sensation's usual quirky dream-pop, the heartbroken stories will be an interesting shift in her accomplished discography.

Look for I Never Learn (LL/Atlantic) on May 6.
