If you’ve felt like you needed a bit more Jens Lekman in your life, today is officially your day. Here’s a brand new video for “Become Someone Else’s” from his recently released album I Know What Love Isn’t. Directed by Marcus Soderland, the video follows a baseball-capped Jens through Denmark’s Raberg Mile dunes, the same location where the album art was shot. “Life’s too good to become someone else’s,” sings Jens. Enjoy the video above or at Pitchfork // Disco Naivete!
The fun doesn’t stop with the video! Jens announces a brand new collaboration with Moleskine for a custom notebook! Featuring artwork by John Gilsenan and the words “Maybe tonight I can re-rewrite this sad song,” the gold and black notebook will be available exclusively as tour merch! Pick up yours tonight >>> Jens kicks off his North American tour with Taken By Trees at Bloomington’s Buskirk-Chumley Theater. Full list of dates HERE. Photo of notebook below!
For our third (and possibly best) bit of news >>> JENS LEKMAN IS HEADED TO LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON! Yep, you read correctly. Jens will make his US network television debut next Tuesday, October 9 following his show at NYC’s Terminal 5!
