“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.
