Lykke Li, the delightful Swedish pop eccentric, is the newest addition to the Central Park Summerstage lineup.

The young singer/songwriter (and last month’s SPIN cover girl) will hit our fair park on August 1 in support of her second album, Wounded Rhymes, released this March.

An acerbic and catchy disc, it hinges on unsettling, almost primal dance beats; lead single “Get Some” was influenced by Murakami and is a brazen, restless pop standout.

Li is also scheduled to perform at Webster Hall on May 17 and 18. Webster and Summerstage tickets are currently on sale.
