“I have to admit, my new album is a bit of a bummer,” confessed Lykke Li before launching into a track from her just-released third LP, I Never Learn. The audience at the Apollo Theater on Thursday night appeared anything but bummed, though, as the 28-year-old Swedish singer-songwriter tackled “a song about wanting to die and shit.” After getting some other haunting ballads and breakup songs “out of [her] system,” Li urged the Apollo crowd to get up and dance as she returned to the more hard-hitting, angst-ridden sounds found on 2011’s Wounded Rhymes: “Rich Kids Blues,” “Youth Knows No Pain” and main-set closer “Get Some.” The evening ended with Li’s self-proclaimed “last song of the disco,” encore finale “Sadness Is a Blessing”—an appropriate title for this night at the Apollo.

Here’s the full set list from the perfomance:

“I Never Learn”
“Love Out of Lust”
“Just Like a Dream”
“No Rest for the Wicked”
“Jerome”
“Hanging High”
“Never Gonna Love Again”
“Little Bit”
“Gunshot”
“Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone”
“Sleeping Alone”
“I Follow Rivers”
“Rich Kids Blues”
“Heart of Steel”
“Youth Knows No Pain”
“Get Some”

Encore
“Du Är Den Ende”
“Sadness Is a Blessing”
