Lykke Li is no stranger to theatricality, as fans most likely saw in her Solarium and "Untitled" videos. And Lykke Li has some rather talented friends: Remember Swedish/Lebanese actor Fares Fares in "I Follow Rivers" video? Well in her latest video for "Sadness is a Blessing" she combines the two - her first music video to actually feature parts sans music features Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgard as her father. Lykke Li plays Skarsgard's attention-grabbing rebel daughter who manages to shock a roomful of affluent dinner patron with her vodka guzzling and dancing. The video was directed by previous collaborator Tarik Saleh.
