Swedish singer/songwriter Jens Lekman has announced the rerelease of two albums: 2005’s Oh You’re So Silent Jens, which has been released under the title The Cherry Trees Are Still in Blossom, and 2007’s Night Falls Over Kortedala, which will be rereleased as The Linden Trees Are Still in Blossom. The Cherry Trees… is out now digitally, and The Linden Trees… will receive a digital release on May 4. Both will be released physically on June 3. Lekman has also shared a video for his 2004 single “Maple Leaves.” View the Jesper Norda and Kristian Berglund-directed video below.

“In many ways the remaking of these records is so much in line with what I was doing at the time,” states Lekman in a press release. “These records are a way of keeping music alive. It’s not preserving music; it’s allowing it to change. Preserved music is dead. I think that’s something that makes me sad about music these days, that it feels sometimes like it’s a big museum. Like butterflies dipped into chloroform pinned to the wall. This is music that is allowed to change. That is in the music’s nature.”

Lekman’s previous album, Life Will See You Now, came out in 2017 via Secretly Canadian. It was one of our Top 100 Albums of 2017. Read our 2017 interview with Lekman on Life Will See You Now.

Lyrics:
It's autumn in Gothenburg
I'm walking home to my suburb
Rain falls hard on the city
On every homeless kitty
Oh please God bring relief
Even if it's only brief
Cause she said that it was just make believe
But I thought she said maple leaves
So we talked for hours
And you cried into my sheets
And you said you hated your body
That it was just a piece of meat
I disagreed
I think you're beautiful
But it's impossible
To make you understand
That if you don’t take my hand
I’ll lose my mind completely
Madness could finally defeat me
She said it was all make believe
But i thought she said maple leaves
And when she talked about the fall
I thought she talked about the season
I never understood at all
I thought she said maple leaves
And when she talked about the fall
I thought she talked about Mark E. Smith
I never understood at all
I never understood at all
I never understood at all
