  • Lyrics
  • The second single from Swedish dance trio Swedish House Mafia's Until Now album is a collaboration with Knife Party, who are the Australian electro house/dubstep duo and Pendulum members Rob Swire and Gareth McGrillen. Knife Party previously did a remix for SHM's single "Save The World." "Antidote" was released in the United States on December 16, 2011 and the United Kingdom on January 15, 2012.
  • The song's music video was directed by BB Gun Films (Kid Cudi, J. Cole, The Roots) and was shot in New York City's Meatpacking District. The trio doesn't appear in the clip, which features a Japanese underworld heist gone wrong. "We gave them free creativity to do whatever they wanted to, and they did," SHB's Angello told MTV News of the visual's creators. "They delivered. They ran with the idea and it's crazy."
