Every song on the album is a power ballad. Like one of those old radio stations. This is a slow dance; a slow burner.
I wrote [“No Rest for the Wicked”] in Sweden when I was packing up my shit, and I’d just gotten out of a relationship and it was a horrible time. I just had the hurt, shame, sadness, guilt, longing. In the verse, I’m referring to myself pleading guilty but I’m referring to all of us.

Swedish singer Lykke Li told the NMEthat her upcoming and third album is the third in a coming of age trilogy that started with 2008’s Youth Novels and continued with 2011’s Wounded Rhymes.
She told the British music paper that the album is about the “intense period” of being a woman in her 20s.
“It’s always about me and the guilt and the shame and the hurt and the pride and the confusion of being a woman.”
She also told the NME that she didn’t believe she was understood as an artist.
“I always feel like I’ve been slightly misunderstood. As a woman you get judged for appearances or things like that I don’t really care about. If anything I want to be seen as a singer-songwriter rather than a pop artist. I really feel like I’ve found my voice.”
