Jens Lekman announces Spring tour!

I hope there are some Jens fans lurking around here.  He's a cutie, that Swedish crooner.

We're happy that Jens Lekman is back on the scene, but there's a big problem with Night Falls Over Kortedala. It came out in the wrong season! How are we supposed to enjoy all those sunny hooks in the middle of January? Fortunately for us, the nature of time is such that it won't always be this cold and/or gross out, and with the announcement of a spring tour of the U.S., Jens is now prepared to strike as soon as things turn nice again.

The sappy Swede's new dates come sandwiched between his appearance at SXSW in March and his sets at two ATP events (one of those being ATP vs. Pitchfork) in May. Of course, he also has plenty of European dates in February, and there's a trio of Australian shows coming up even sooner.
