Jens Lekman

We love Swedish singer-songwriter Jens Lekman, and were thrilled by his recent release of three new songs, including the track “WWJD.”  Jens describes the lighthearted tune this way, “While traveling through midwest America some time ago I stopped at a gas station and bought a WWJD bracelet for $1.99 and insisted that it stood for ‘What Would Jens Do?’. I would look at it when I felt indecisive, think about what Jens really would do and then do the opposite of that. I thought that would be a good way to find some new paths in life, and to get away from the paths I kept taking that didn’t lead me anywhere good.”  How true! We don’t ask ourselves, “What Would Jesus Do?” but, “What would I do?”  Let’s be real. This is a playful song about having regrets and trying to chart a new course. Listen to it on repeat here:
