Black Tin Box
by Miike Snow (featuring Lykke Li)

Album: Happy To You (2012)

Songfacts®:

  • This sinister track features eerie vocals from Swedish songstress Lykke Li. The band explained the collaboration to Billboard magazine: "She's a friend of ours. And she just came by the studio and wanted to hear the record. We played it for her and she heard that song… We were kind of thinking maybe it would be cool to have her because we toured together. We used to do a duet on stage of a cover song that she had in her set. And I don't know, it just seemed like a good fit; like we had sort of weird Kris Kristofferson, Dolly Parton thing going on or something."
