Sexually fluid singer Lykke Li recently performed a live acoustic version of a song off her upcoming album, I Never Learn. The song is called “Gunshot” and the album will be available on May 5.
In a 2008 interview with The New Gay Li said of her own sexuality:
“I just don’t believe in telling someone ‘You’re straight, you’re gay.” You are whatever you are. I’m a child of the ‘80s. I have so many friend that are bi, I believe people can be that if the environment is right. I’m not saying if I am or not. I don’t bother to narrow it down. You fall in love with people.”
In the past Li has also performed at the Summerwood Series featuring “GLBT and GLBT-friendly artists.”

Roisin Murphy - 'Ancora Tu'
Irish disco chanteuse Róisín Murphy is back with her first official extended release in 7 years! Since 2007's Overpowered LP, she has released a smattering of singles and guest vocals, keeping rabid fans like myself chomping at the bit for any Róisín that we could get. May 28th marks the date that her new Mi Senti EP is released, and as the name may allude, it's an Italian-language effort containing 5 covers of Italian pop songs and one original track. Roisin has showed her chops for doing cover songs in the past, with a cover of Bryan Ferry's 'Slave to Love', used in a 2008 Gucci campaign. For 'Ancora Tu', a 1976 hit by Italian singer Lucio Battista, Roisin adds in her signature moody electronic sound and almost spooky background vocals to reshape the song into something that is purely her own.
