Jens Lekman

“The End Of The World Is Bigger Than Love”

Jens Lekman is at it again. With his world-famous smirk and long-ish pubes, Lekman has returned with a new single, “The End Of The World Is Bigger Than Love.” Music to slit your wrists to. (Though, that’s not quite how Lekman puts it.)

This track, “Daughters of Darkness,” was an older, unfinished track that the band finally recorded and released last year on Chemikal Underground’s Arab Strap box set, Scenes of a Sexual Nature.
