Jens Lekman


Hackney Empire | London | 20/9/2012

"Swedish folk-pop minstrel Jens Lekman raises a glass of white wine – this is his 500th live show.

He may be a prolific performer, but he's taken his time in the studio: five years for the new album, I Know What Love Isn't.

Many of those songs are of a love-lorn ilk, whether dedicated tonight to “anyone who's ever had their heart broken” or to “anyone who's had to break someone's heart”.

A master storyteller, he writes with a disarming, and often funny, candidness from his own life".
