When she's not out performing with her musical crush (see video below), Lykke Li has been hitting the road in support of her critically acclaimed debut disc, Youth Novels. Li has just added another round of dates in the UK & Europe later in the fall, due to the fact that most of her shows on the last go round were sold out.
Getting back to Li's musical crush, she recently posted this on her myspace... "I've been in the States doing all kind of things: shows, parties and shoots but one of the most treasurable things was meeting up with my music crush Bon Iver an evening when the sun was still out....Very cinematic. The scenario: We were in LA at the same time and hooked up for some whisky before his show...And oh yes, I kinda started singing one of my songs and he kinda started singing along. And guess what? Bam di di bam, we got it on film".
