Jens Lekman is back! With his new album set for release on September 4, we’re seeing lots of new goodies from the man who stepped out of the spotlight for almost five years. Yesterday, Jens stopped by The Guardian’s London studio to perform the title track “I Know What Love Isn’t” live. Hear what Jens has to say about the song and then watch the performance below.


“The last couple of weeks have been filled with interviews. One thing most journalists ask me is, since the album is a break up album, if making an album like this helps you be done with the heartache. To which I reply no, if there is any conclusion on this album it would be that a broken heart is something you carry with you, for better or for worse.” – Jens
