Lykke Li Release 'Love Me Like I'm Not Made of Stone' Video

(Radio.com) Eighties hair-metal rockers, eat your heart out, because Swedish pop crossover Lykke Li just announced her new album I Never Learn, in which she says every track is a "power ballad."

Not that there will be much in the way of musical similarity. I Never Learn is released May 6 in North America (May 5 internationally) on LL/Atlantic Records and one listen to its lead-off single "Love Me Like I'm Not Made of Stone" assures as much. I Never Learn definitely looks like a break-up record. Also a "slow dance; a slow burner," Lykke said.

"I wrote [one song] in Sweden when I was packing up my s-, and I'd just gotten out of a relationship and it was a horrible time," she said. "I just had the hurt, shame, sadness, guilt, longing."

The video for "Love Me Like I'm Not Made of Stone," directed by Tarik Saleh, is basically one long, unbroken close up of Lykke, reminiscent of Sinead O'Connor's video for "Nothing Compares 2U".

The album was co-produced by Lykke, Björn Yttling of Peter Björn and John and GRAMMY-award winning producer Greg Kurstin.
