Across three studio albums, the Swedish singer/songwriter and musician has proven not only his flair for telling very personal stories with a sharp self-awareness, but also his skill for balancing depth of emotional expression with droll and often self-deprecating detail. It’s a winning pop combination.

His fourth, Life Will See You Now, is a typical Lekman album in several ways: sly humor is key to its heartfelt nature; it inverts pops writing norm by making songs with sad concerns sound happy and songs with a happy subject sound sad; and it plays with notions of identity and the self.

Released today along with the album announcement, the obviously upbeat lead single “What’s That Perfume That You Wear?” features steel pans sample from Ralph MacDonald’s “The Path” of 1978 “one of my favorite records ever,” enthuses Lekman.
