JENS LEKMAN "The Opposite of Hallelujah" MP3 + ANNOUNCE TOUR

Jens Lekman

The Swedish troubadour has announced some new tour dates.  With the hope of a new album on the horizon, having seen Jens Lekman live a handful of times – it is a show not to be missed.  Either with his grand backing band or just alone with his voice, guitar and iPod, Jens Lekman is a true entertainer.  His songs can be translated live in so many ways and whatever way he chooses they always shine.

Below is a YouTube video of Jens Lekman performing his hit song “The Opposite of Hallelujah” form Night Falls Over Kortedala. In Tokyo at the Grapefruit Moon, Sangentyaya with guest players Tomomi and Yukiko, he masterfully performs the song with mostly just his voice and guitar. The song is sung elegantly

Here he performs the song with a full band at the Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, Ohio:

In both versions, whether alone or with a large band Jens Lekman is incapable of bad performance. Make sure you see him live! It’ll make your summer grand!
