jenslekman 1 Check Out: Jens Lekman   An Argument With Myself

Last month, Swedish indie-pop maestro Jens Lekman outlined phase one of his musical master plan – which consists of releasing an EP and an LP by year’s end – with the announcement of An Argument With Myself EP. Now, via his official site, Lekman has unveiled the first song from that EP with the title track. We love it when a plan comes together.

We could describe the bouncy, Carribbean-inspired track ourselves, but why not let Lekman defend his creation: “In the case ‘Jens Lekman vs. Jens Lekman’, we will look closer at the evidence presented – the photo I had carried in my breastpocket for a whole year, the pressed honeysuckle, the wind so rich on summer and so sweet – how are these things connected and why are they relevant?” Regardless of either, it’s a great kick-off to a highly-anticipated effort and Lekman’s first release since 2007’s Night Falls Over Kortedala.

Check out “An Argument With Myself”, along with the EP tracklist and Lekman’s upcoming tour dates, below. An Argument With Myself EP is in stores September 20th via Service/Secretly Canadian.
