Jens Lekman - I Know What Love Isn't

He’s only just released his latest album last year but Swedish crooner Jens Lekman is already dropping new tracks, although this one has an interesting backstory to it.

As his label Secretly Canadian describe:

“During Hurricane Sandy last November, Jens Lekman’s pianist, Jonas, was stuck in New York City with no way of getting to the West Coast to resume touring. Jens reached out to the world, asking if anyone could help get Jonas to Boston, where he could catch a flight. Two girls, Oliva and Maddy (THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU), ended up driving Jonas to Boston and in return for their kindness, Jens said he would write them a song! He’s made good on his promise and shared his new track, “Olivia & Maddy””

You can listen to and download the track below, and if you missed his album I Know What Love Isn’t, you’re missing out. MISSING OUT!
