Local | Jens Lekman makes exclusive concert at the Southern Theater in Stockholm

By on August 4, 2016

Swedish indie darling Jens Lekman is back soon with new material, and in the fall he makes an exclusive performance at the prestigious Southern Theater in Stockholm –his first gig in Stockholm over three years. Ticket release on August 5 Friday at 10:00.

Jens Lekman hit with his debut album When ISaid I Wanted To Be Your Dog 2004 andimmediately became one of Sweden’s most beloved indie artists – while he was hailedaround the world. Since then Lekman received numerous awards and rave reviews, side by side with establishing himself as one of the strongest and most reliable troubadours, with magical songs where his unique narrative style and lyrics meet clever melodies. Since his debut, Lekmanonly released two full length albums, 2007 NightFalls Over Kortedala and I Know What Love Isn’t that arrived in 2012, but still constantly been relevant and active with the EP release and singles. Just last year took Lekman on it almost absurd project to release a new song every week.

This says Jens himself:

“Hello world,

I’m sorry I haven’t been very good at keeping in touch the last months. It’s because I’ve been working endless nights trying to finish my new album. It’s 99% done now! But more about that later. I just wanted to tell you that this fall I’m going to head out and do five shows to try some of the new songs before the album comes out. These will be solo shows, just me, a guitar, maybe a sampler, maybe a glass of red wine resting nonchalantly on my guitar amp. Some stories. Some songs. Maybe a beat so you can dance a little. Will I see you there?

Miss you
