2. Waiting for Kirsten
3. A Promise

It’s out September 19th on Secretly Canadian. Lekman says these songs didn’t fit the mood of his upcoming record, so except a full-length album soon too!

Just found this diddy on my iTunes and love it. It’s a New Buffalo track that was originally featured on her album The Last Beautiful Day. This version however was featured on a self-titled EP with guest appearance by DOH fav Jens Lekman. Yay! He is currently on tour in Asia (if you’re from there, great) with Viktor Sjöberg.Tour Dates follow the mp3.
