Swedish guitar-pop bard Jens Lekman has given notice of new LP ‘I Know What Love Isn’t’, his first since 2007’s ‘Night Falls Over Kortedala’. Marked for release through Secretly Canadian on 3 Sep, it will feature sparse orchestral touches and subtle transitions from phase to phase.

Just ask Jens, who says: “I wanted the songs to take off almost unnoticeably, where the chorus is separated from the verse only through a small detail like a tambourine or a harmony”.

Album track ‘Erica America’ is available to preview below, after this trio of forthcoming UK shows:

19 Sep: Manchester, Ruby Lounge
20 Sep: London, Hackney Empire
21 Sep: Brighton, The Haunt
