Yesterday I heard this NPR interview with Lykke Li. I’m not a Twilight fan. I’m not saying I wouldn’t like it, but I just haven’t seen any of the movies or read the books…yet. But I was a fan of Lykke Li, so I was surprised when I heard her connection to the movie. Turns out she’d never heard of Twilight before she was asked to perform on the soundtrack of New Moon.
When asked what her latest album, Wounded Rhymes, will mean to her when she listens to it later in life she had this to say:
“I’m going to be like Benjamin Button; I’m just going to grow younger. I will probably be happy, fat, with kids and looking back and thinking, I was such a angry young woman. It’s the dark years before I kind of understood that life is hard, but it’s always beautiful.”
