This week, Lykke Li releases two new tracks. One is a sweet Swedish ballad for a film she’s set to star in, while the other comes from her upcoming record I Never Learn. Hear those songs below. Also, the Rolling Stones have set new dates for their postponed Australian and New Zealand tour. All that and more below.

  • Rolling Stones Set New Tour Dates: Earlier this week, the Rolling Stones postponed a series of shows in Australia and New Zealand due to the tragic death of fashion designer L’Wren Scott, who was the longtime girlfriend of Mick Jagger. The band has now rescheduled the shows, which were set to take place during March and April, for October. A spokesperson for Frontier Touring told The Guardian said, “If the new dates are not suitable, rest assured you will be able to secure a refund. While we encourage fans to hold on to their tickets, the option to secure a refund is now available to you via the official ticketing agency you purchased from.”
  • Justin Timberlake Launches Music Video: Justin Timberlake released a new music video for “Not A Bad Thing,” which doubles as a documentary about the search for a couple who got engaged on the Long Island Railroad to the tune of the same track. The track is part of Timberlake’s 2013 album The 20/20 Experience. Check it out:

  • Lykke Li Releases Two New Songs: Lykke Li surprised us this week by releasing two new tracks. The first is a new Swedish song, not from her upcoming record, but rather part of the soundtrack for Tarik Saleh’s new crime thriller Tommy, which she also stars in. She also releases “No Rest For The Wicked,” off I Never Learn, which is set for release May 5. Check out both songs below:
