Based on a film and live music project by Johanna Billing (Stockholm), You Don't Love Me Yet is a bitterwseet convergence between the individual and the audience whose catalyst is the 80's pop song, "You Don't Love Me Yet" by Roky Erickson. The project commenced in October 2002 including more than twenty participating singers, soloists and bands. Roky Erickson's song was covered again and again, repeated in a wide variety of interpretations each reflecting the participants' own personal style. One performance was followed by another in what increasingly came to resemble a tragi-comic, manic litany about the social demands that weigh heavily on people.

The “You Don’t Love Me Yet” project consists of both a film and an ongoing live tour (2002-2010) in which local musicians in different cities were invited to collectively cover the 1984 song “You Don’t Love Me Yet” by the Texan singer-songwriter Roky Erickson. The film “You Don’t Love Me Yet” (2003) depicts a group of musicians performing the song together in a recording studio in Stockholm and exploits a dramatic repetition of melody  and lyrics to unravel popular constructions of love, while presenting  an evaluation of the formation of contemporary subjectivity.
