Everybody everywhere mostly knows Lykke Li from her monster single ‘I Follow Rivers’ taken from her 2011 album Wounded Rhymes. The Magician remix was a huge club hit but I preferred the Dave Sitek remix which I played at gigs for months.
‘No Rest For The Wicked’ is the lead single from Lykke Li’s new album I Never Learn. In an interview with Rolling Stone she described the album as a collection of “power ballads for the broken”. I really like this chilled out remix by Joris Voorn which is one of the three remixes on the single. The original track starts off slow and builds into a wall of sound with additional vocals by A$AP Rocky, and the remix is a great reinterpretation. I’ll be playing it at gigs for sure.
