Jens will release new album ‘I Know What Love Isn’t’ on 3rd September in the UK/EU (4th Sept USA, 3rd Sept on Service in Scandinavia). It is now available for pre-order from Amazon.

 

‘I Know What Love Isn’t’ uses an economical palette of sounds. It has strings but not a string section, an upright piano not grand, a single saxophone, gracenotes from a flute, a lot of tambourine. Combined in exact proportions with Lekman’s melancholy abstract lyrics, the songs evoke the Brill Building sound. ‘I Know What Love Isn’t’ reveals Lekman to be a storyteller of the highest caliber, letting his delicate vignettes unfold to show the wonder that lies in the mundane.

 

Jens will play Soundlabs Festival in Italy in July before touring Europe this September and the USA in October. All dates are listed below.
