Video: Lykke Li - Sadness Is A Blessing
After the success of Lykke Li's Wounded Rhymes album, she's now unveiled the new video - third from the album - for the heartfelt "Sadness Is A Blessing".
It's been a tough couple of weeks for LL and she released this (rather funny) statement just a few days ago regarding the cancellation of her forthcoming shows:
"I had some kind of complete meltdown on Marks & Spencer in Glasgow on one of those very rare days off while on route. For various reasons, various hardships sneaked up on me and I was standing at an isle contemplating life and death and the struggles of being an artist/soul/woman/human being when the overbearingness sneaked up on me like Batman himself. I fell to the floor and so did the raspberries I had in my hand, the troubled breathing lead to some severe lumbago which ment I couldn't move and had to lay straight for a few days. In a valium haze I took a flight back to my loved ones where a strong man cracked my holy spine loose and I was soon able to walk again. Little did I know it was my troubled hip joint that was the problem in the first place, so had to go back to a horizontal mode. My body then decided Easter was the perfect time to let a god damn flu blossom out, so I spent the whole easter praying to God to get better, drinking ginger tea while watching Apocalypse Now wishing nothing more then that I could have been on that stage with you."

The video for "Sadness Is A Blessing" was shot by Tarik Saleh ("I Follow Rivers") and sees Lykke going kind of crazy - check it out below.
