[A few days ago], I was supposed to go to the studio … all of a sudden, I have an idea. With your album being titled so sad so sexy, you were kind of a go-to collaborator for Mark Robinson’s album. I’m more interested in intimacy and something organic again. Yeah. I’m excited to see what kind of environment they create. An opportunity to do the festival came. So, no, I’m not shocked. , "Little Bit" did not enter the Ultratop 50, but peaked at number 9 on the Flemish. But I love writing songs, so if I write a song and it comes out, that’s cool as a songwriter. Everything just happens by coincidence. Especially sonically, that song is so much like my teenage years when all I listened to was R&B. I came in and wrote the chorus. The Swedish artist is set to be a permanent fixture this summer, having sung on the lead single – and title track – of Mark Ronson’s forthcoming album ‘Late Night Feelings’. Yeah. All rights reserved. It’s important that people show up. Like, who cares? There’s something about a performer under bright lights singing their naked emotions over a simple beat that stops listeners in their tracks, but pair those same sad songs with an up-tempo rhythm, and you’ll dance away the blues all night long. Anyone can come, of course, but it’s female winemakers, mescal, food artists, activities. We got the opportunity to create a festival, so we did it. The lineup–which includes Courtney Love and Cat Power–is killer as well. Lykke Li opened up to SPIN about her new EP, 'still sad still sexy,' how mescal led to her launching a female-focused festival, and more. Yeah, but there’s a lot more songs. I was playing around on the piano when I sang “so sad so sexy” and “deep end” and it hit another nerve in me. "Late Night Feelings" did not enter the Swedish Singellista Chart, but peaked at number 11 on the Swedish Heatseeker Chart. It happened super organically. Were you surprised by the reaction to the record? I recorded it on my voice memo, and then when I go in, it just unravels. I’m ready for a more intimate life. You’ve worked with select writers and producers in the past, but this past year you’ve collaborated with everyone from Mark Ronson to Ty Dolla $ign. I went down to Mexico City, like, six years ago, and kind of fell in love with this girl called Yola.

's single "Gifted" in 2009, and penned and recorded the song "Possibility" for the soundtrack of The Twilight Saga: New Moon later that year. Not just the music industry, but the whole world is just a bunch of dudes, you know? If you’re not interested, then you shouldn’t make anything. I love reading. That was great. I’m reading. Let’s create a female empowerment brand where we only work with women, and we try to do something good while having fun.”. You have the YOLA DÍA festival coming up in Los Angeles next month, which is presented by the YOLA Mezcal brand you co-own with Yola Jimenez and Gina Correll Aglietti.

What drove you to put out the new EP, still sad still sexy? It’s so easy to release something now with streaming, and I just felt so connected with some of the songs. You have to immerse yourself in something hard and difficult that you haven’t done before, and that, for me, is what I did. How are you feeling about that? It’s an alluring juxtaposition Lykke Li lives, and one that’s set the general tone for the last two years of her career. There’s a lot of people we wanted that are tied into doing other things, so we hope this can keep going, get bigger and bigger, and hopefully everyone will be able to say yes in the future. And I just got my own house in L.A. That has really been so inspiring, to create a sanctuary that reflects who you are and how you feel. Why not? "Late Night Feelings" did not enter the Netherlands' Single Top 100 but peaked on the Netherlands' Single Tip Chart at number 30. If I’m not inspired, then I don’t want to do it. With a bit of distance from the project, has your view of the album changed in any way? Lykke Li is a Swedish singer and songwriter. But the human experience is far from static, and in 2018, Li took her sound in a new direction with her fourth album, so sad so sexy. But it was very emotional when I did the acoustic takes because when I was recording the album, I was in the thick of all the pain and all the drama, and to later hear it again in such a raw form, I was so broken-hearted. “Deep End” in particular stopped me in my tracks. Yeah, definitely. Is that right? Somethings you let go. You’ve been heavily featured in summer festivals over the years, were you shocked by that number? When so sad so sexy was announced last summer, a lot of people were caught off guard when it was announced that you’d signed with RCA and releasing music that seemed so different from your past releases. I went down to the farm and I fell in love with the whole ethos of the brand. I’m kind of done schlepping around the world, you know? We have speakers and we’re giving back to the L.A. She’s also busying herself with an upcoming festival performance at New Mexican art collective Meow Wolf’s Taos Vortex, and the organization of her own female-fronted event, Yola Dia. And YOLA Mezcal is a half-Mexican company, so we’re trying to show how important it is to unite, and how big the Mexican culture is in America—and point out what the fuck is going on at the border. Buy a ticket and come drink with us! So, basically, it’s a festival for people who hate music festivals. I just read, [by Sheila Heti], which I thought was really good. There’s something about a performer under bright lights singing their naked emotions over a simple beat that stops listeners in their tracks, but pair those same sad songs with an up-tempo rhythm, and you’ll dance away the blues all night long. Going back to still sad still sexy, I understand the second take on “Two Nights” came from Skrillex having his own vision for the tune. Life is short, I can’t spend any more time on an airplane playing in front of people who have no idea who I am. He kept calling it a collection of “sad bangers.” Strangely fitting. And the shit she has to hear from the workers? Besides having a small child to care for, you just released your still sad still sexy EP. My tour manager is female, and I’m usually the only festival performer with a female tour manager. She’s also busying herself with an upcoming festival performance at New Mexican art collective Meow Wolf’s.
