LOS ANGELES, March 4 (UPI) -- Lykke Li unveiled a video for her new single and announced the release date for her next studio album on Wednesday.

The Swedish singer's third record, I Never Learn, will hit shelves on May 5 internationally and on May 6 in North America. The album features nine songs, all of which Li described as "power ballads."

"Every song on the album is a power ballad. Like one of those old radio stations. This is a slow dance; a slow burner," she said.

"I wrote ["No Rest for the Wicked"] in Sweden when I was packing up my shit, and I’d just gotten out of a relationship and it was a horrible time. I just had the hurt, shame, sadness, guilt, longing. In the verse, I’m referring to myself pleading guilty but I’m referring to all of us."

Li's first promotional video for the album, "Love Me Like I'm Not Made Of Stone," also made its debut Wednesday. You can check out the clip and the entire track list for the album below.

1. "I Never Learn"
2. "No Rest for the Wicked"
3. "Just Like a Dream"
4. "Silverline"
5. "Gunshot"
6. "Love Me Like I’m Not Made of Stone"
7. "Never Gonna Love Again"
8. "Heart of Steel"
9. "Sleeping Alone"
