Limited orange colored vinyl LP pressing. Jens Lekman describes his new record, Life Will See You Now, playfully, but also honestly, as a midlife-crisis disco album; it's an existentialist record, about seeing the consequences of your choices. It's a typical Lekman album in several ways: sly humor is key to it's heartfelt nature; it inverts pop's writing norm by making songs with sad concerns sound happy and songs with a happy subject sound sad; and it plays with notions of identity and the self. But, as the title suggests, it also represents a significant move forward, as if across a threshold. It's the more expansive, upbeat sound of a revitalized Lekman, who is just one of many characters in his new stories about the magic and messiness of different kinds of relationships.
