Prior to release, Lykke revealed multiple tracks including the album's lead single deep end followed by hard rain, utopia, two nights feat Aminé and sex money feelings die. Lykke Li released two highly seductive videos, one for single deep end shot entirely on an iPhone, and released part two of that love story with the cinematic video for album track hard rain directed by Anton Tammi. She also shared a video crafted with personal home videos for utopia.
Fader praised her return as "one of the most anticipated pop releases this year" and Rolling Stone called hard rain a "mesmerising ballad" while Pitchfork stated the song had "inventive sonic choices around every corner." Early reviews for the album claim so sad so sexy is "a superb reinvention of Lykke Li" (Consequence of Sound).
The album was produced by Lykke Li and Malay (Lorde, Frank Ocean) with collaborators Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Bruno Mars, Rihanna), Rostam (Solange Knowles, HAIM), Illangelo (The Weeknd), Jonny Coffer (Beyonce, Naughty Boy, Sam Smith), DJ Dahi (BANKS, Ty Dolla Sign), T-Minus (Kendrick Lamar, Drake), Skrillex and Emile Haynie (Eminem, Lana Del Rey, Dua Lipa). Songs were written mainly by Lykke with her main co-writer Ilsey Juber (Beyonce, Drake, Kanye, Majid Jordan).
Lykke performed lead single deep end on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last week accompanied by the Harlem Choir. Watch it here.
