Hot Video Alert: Lykke Li - Sadness Is A Blessing
It's always nice to see Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård, and seeing him in Swedish singer/songwriter Lykke Li's new music video is an extra special surprise. "Sadness Is A Blessing" is the third single taken from Li's sophomore release, Wounded Rhymes. The album was produced by Björn Yttling and went on to become Li's highest charting album in the states, peaking at #36 on the Billboard 200 as well as #10 on the Billboard Rock Albums chart and #7 on the Alternative Albums chart. The album also did well in the UK, peaking at #37 on the UK Album Chart. The video for "Sadness Is a Blessing" was directed by Egyptian/Swedish TV producer, animator and film director Tarik Saleh, who also directed the visually stunning video for Lykke Li's last single, "I Follow Rivers." Li, who recently cancelled a string of UK dates due to a "meltdown" is set to perform a string of dates in the U.S. later this month.
