The Swedish singer-songwriter is also set to appear in a crime thriller.

Lykke Li will complete the trilogy of albums that began with 2008’s Youth Novel and 2011’s Wounded Rhymes with an as-yet-untitled album, due out this May.

Of the album’s genesis, the singer-songwriter tells NME, “It’s always about me and the guilt and the shame and the hurt and the pride and the confusion of being a woman.”

“I always feel like I’ve been slightly misunderstood. As a woman you get judged for appearances or things like that I don’t really care about. If anything I want to be seen as a singer-songwriter rather than a pop artist. I really feel like I’ve found my voice.”

Since the release of her last album, she performed vocals on David Lynch’s The Big Dream single ‘I’m Waiting Here’. Additionally, she acted in the forthcoming Swedish crime thriller Tommy, reuniting with ‘I Follow Rivers’ and ‘Sadness Is A Blessing’ director Tarik Saleh. The trailer is below and the film is out March 14.
