Jens Lekman to tour the US: Prepare for release of new singles collection, Oh You’re So Silent, Jens

Jens Lekman has again seen the light and plans a 3 week nationwide tour of the United States.

As if he didn’t break enough hearts during his last tour of the US last March, he plans on visiting ports far and wide from Vermont to California to help in the healing process. With the new Secretly Canadian singles collection Oh You’re So Silent, Jens in hand and a full orchestra in tow, Jens will be ready to show everyone how much Sweden loves the U.S.

About Oh You’re So Silent, Jens
Preceding his successful debut full length, When I Said I Wanted To Be Your Dog, Jens Lekman released into the world three little gems. Gems that didn’t reach as far as the LP… but damn, were those perfect nuggets.

First came Maple Leaves (a concise pop masterpiece with such poignant hits such as “Black Cab” and “Maple Leaves”), then came the Rocky Dennis EP (a more personal and bittersweet affair in which Jens celebrates and eventually retires his erroneous alter ego, Rocky Dennis, mistakenly given to him after a Swedish DJ happened upon an early demo of this recording), and You Are the Light (the perfect harmony between the previous two eps including the wondrous title track of horns, love and misdemeanors).

And so we present to you this collection of all three out-of-print eps as well as some hard to find out-takes from the harder to find Dept. Of Forgotten Songs.
