Night Time, My Time

Album: Night Time, My Time (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • The artwork for Sky Ferreira's Night Time, My Time album features the singer naked in the shower. The cover was shot by the Argentine film director and screenwriter, Gasper Noé, who is mostly known for the feature films I Stand Alone, Irréversible and Enter the Void. Noè also worked on the videos for Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds' "We No Who U R" and Animal Collective's "Applesauce."
  • The song and album title is a line said by anti-heroine Laura Palmer in David Lynch's movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me. The song's music video, directed by Grant Singer, also pays tribute to David Lynch and Laura Palmer.

    David Lynch's surreal early 1990s television drama series, Twin Peaks, was centred on the question, 'Who killed Laura Palmer?' As the series progressed, viewers learned that Palmer was not the innocent she first seemed. The 1992 psychological horror movie Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me was both a prologue and epilogue to the television series. Here are three more songs inspired by Twin Peaks:

    "Laura Palmer" by Bastille
    "Wild Thing" by Noah and the Whale
    "Slow, Love, Slow" by Nightwish
  • Ferreira told MTV News why she titled the album after this tune. "I feel like it just kind of summed up the record in some weird way even though it doesn't even sound like any of the songs," she said. "At least where my head was when I shot the album cover and when I finished recording everything and as I was writing the majority of the record, I think that was the headspace I was at, was that song."
