Watch Lykke Li's Wicked New Video

by

Swedish chanteuse Lykke Li has no fear of the dramatic and plenty of confidence in her own acting chops. Her latest video, for the torchy single "No Rest For The Wicked," is another in a line of Li's cinematic videos.

The clip, posted below, is directed by Tarik Saleh, is a somber tale of a couple brought together, seemingly judged by others and then torn asunder. Expect walzing in wheatfields, plenty of stricken faces, menacing bartenders and Li briefly sporting a hairnet too.

Lykke Li, who returns Stateside to play New York's Apollo Theater on May 15, releases her next album, I Never Learn, in the States on May 6 and in the UK and Europe the day before.
