Lykke Li’s new album, I Never Learn, aches with lyrics made even more meaningful by heavy reverb: “Love me deep until you end / Even though it hurts, even though it scars.” It’s a breakup album that doesn’t quite get over the breakup, which is okay! Sometimes you don’t come out unscathed. Most important, it’s beautiful and streaming at NPR. Be happy it’s springtime so you can blame the tears on your allergies.
