Jens Lekman has given away a brand new track from his forthcoming EP alongside the announcement of a full European and UK tour in October (full details are below).
Jens says, "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?"
Jens' European and UK tour dates are as follows, including a show at London's Heaven and Pitchfork Festival in Paris:
10/14/11 Nijmegen, NL - The Vereniging
10/15/11 Dusseldorf, DE - Schumannsaal Dusseldorf
10/17/11 London, UK - Heaven
10/19/11 Manchester, UK - Band on the Wall
10/22/11 Stockholm, SE - Sodra Teatern
10/24/11 Kopenhamn, DK - Jazzhouse
10/27/11 Milano, IT - Salumeria della Musica
10/29/11 Paris, FR - Grande Halle de la Villette (Pitchfork Music Festival)
'An Argument With Myself' will be released on Secretly Canadian on September 19th in the UK, September 20th in the US and Service in Scandinavia.
The EP is Lekman's first full release in four years, following on from his critically acclaimed 2007 album 'Night Falls Over Kortedala'. Praise for '.Kortedala' was wide-ranging and the album was named one of Pitchfork's Top 200 Albums of the 2000s.
'An Argument With Myself' is the wry, sprightly title track of the 5 track EP, stream or download it below on the soundcloud link
