Swedish singer/songwriter Jens Lekman released a new album, Life Will See You Now, last month via Secretly Canadian. Previously he shared the album’s first single, the dance-pop gem “What’s That Perfume That You Wear?,” as well as a video for the song and another track from the record, “Evening Prayer.” He also previously announced a contest, “Jens Will Loop You Now,” in which he asked fans to submit a loop to potentially be used in his live show in return for free tickets. Now he has shared a video for “How We Met, the Long Version.” In the song Lekman describes how the Earth was formed and how apes evolved into man, before building up to specifics of how he met the girl the song is addressed to. The video fittingly features Lekman singing the song in front of a comic background. Watch it below, followed by Lekman’s upcoming tour dates.

Life Will See You Now is the follow-up to 2012’s I Know What Love Isn’t, although he’s kept busy since then, including releasing a new song a week in 2015 as part of his Postcards project and his Ghostwriting project the same year where he wrote personalized songs for people. Ewan Pearson (M83, The Chemical Brothers, Goldfrapp) helped produce Life Will See You Now.
