Jens Lekman for Cork Opera House and Whelan's

Having just released I Know What Love Isn't, the dynamic Jens Lekman has announced a European tour that will see the Gothenburg native perform a couple of times in Ireland including a visit to the Half Moon Theatre. Excluding a raft of EPs, the new record is the Swedish songwriter's third full length official studio album and long awaited follow up to 2007's much lauded Night Falls Over Kortedala.

Speaking of the record's slightly more subtle arrangements - "I wanted the songs to take off almost unnoticeably, where the chorus is separated from the verse only through a small detail like a tambourine or a harmony" - it might be assumed that the string of dates will be a more intimate affair compared to previous tours that have included full choirs and string sections.
