Artist Interviews Jens Lekman

"All of the songs are emotionally autobiographical," Jens Lekman explains of the tension between fiction and non-fiction in his songwriting. Dylan Peterson met Jens before his show at the Metro to talk about working at weddings while feeling cynical about love, learning how to become your own role model in your 30s, and being in Chicago the night the Cubs won the World Series.
