Each week this year Jens Lekman is going to #bless us with a new song as he's in the process of writing and recording his new album. Last week we got the first of those, and he's kept true to his word with his new song which surfaced today, 'Postcard #2'. It's warm and delightful, something that sound sound lovely cozied up next to a fire with a glass of wine as the coldest days of winter bear down on us all. Listen to the song below, and read his note about the project after.

Happy new year!

Here’s my new years resolution for 2015: While working on my next album, I will sit down once a week, write down my thoughts, turn them into a song and share it with you directly. Think of these little songs as postcards. Little greetings from me to you.

You see, I spend a lot of time on my songs, on their details. I sweep the streets that my characters walk on and polish every doorknob until I feel confident to let other people in. But it does lead to a very isolated creative phase.

And I’ve been longing to share my thoughts and life with you a bit more. I’ve been longing to write about things that make sense one particular day but that might make no sense once the album comes out.

Then at the end of this year we can sit down you and me and listen through these 52 songs, and remember where we were and when we were there, who we kissed and who we missed. I’m looking forward to that.

Yours truly

Jens Lekman
