Sweden’s Lykke Li is releasing a new album, so sad, so sexy, on June 8 via RCA. Previously she shared its first two singles, “hard rain” and “deep end.” Now she has shared another song from the album, “utopia,” via a video for the song. The Clara Cullen-directed video was shared today in honor of Mother’s Day and features old home video footage of a childhood Lykke Li and her mother, as well as modern footage of Li and her son. Watch it below.

The YouTube description for the video is simply: “MOTHER TO MOTHER TO MOTHER. Utopia is all my mother ever wanted for me and all I ever want for him.”

Earlier in April Li shared a mysterious new 90-second teaser trailer that featured new instrumental music and was also entitled so sad, so sexy. It featured the singer/songwriter is various states of dress in several settings.

Lykke Li’s last album was 2014’s I Never Learn. In February she shared a new cover of Jim Croce’s 1972 single “Time in a Bottle.”

In 2016 and 2017 Lykke Li released some music with LIV, a Swedish supergroup that features Li, her romantic partner Jeff Bhasker, Andrew Wyatt from Miike Snow, Pontus Winnberg from Miike Snow and Amason, and Peter Bjorn and John‘s Björn Yttling. In September 2016 the band was announced via the debut of their first song, “Wings of Love.” Then in October 2016 we were treated to a NSFW video for the song directed by Li in her directorial debut. Then in November 2016 there was another song from the band, the slow-burning “Dream Awake.” In June 2017 LIV shared a third song, the upbeat “Heaven,” via its lyric video. Then in September 2017 they shared a delicate new song, “Hurts to Liv.”
