Jens Lekman sees world through his songs
For years, Swedish singer Jens Lekman has leveraged the considerable romantic charms of his underground pop for a global commodity he seems to value more than wealth and fame, and almost as much as love itself — friendship. In his native land of dark winters and bright pop acts, Lekman has regularly hit the top of the charts. But the singer has chosen to spend much of his adult life outside the country that loves him best. He performs at Royale on Saturday.
