Now, today, we're getting our first full listen at the kind of weepers she'll be serving up with her new album, I Never Learn, due out in early May. "Love Me Like I'm Not Made of Stone" (beat that for a title), is right in line with Li's progression toward sparer backing tracks and moodier lyrics. More than anything else, it reminds us of Gram Parsons' "Love Hurts," a classic in the tear-jerker genre. The video itself is literally a weeper — just three minutes and 49 seconds of a wet-haired Li slowly spinning in the aftermath of what appears to be an epic crying jag. It's beautiful, in a profoundly sad way (like so much of her recent work). For a similarly soul-crushing preview of I Never Learn, click here. Looks like this summer's going to be a gorgeous bummer.
