Du & jag döden (Swedish for You & Me Death) is the sixth studio album by Swedishalternative rock band Kent. It was released on March 15, 2005 through RCA Records and Sony BMG. As the title implies, death is a major theme of the album which, before its release, was described by the band as dark and depressing; in keeping with this, the plastic album cover and the playable side of the CD are both black. The album debuted at number one in Sweden and Norway, and at number two in Denmark and Finland. As of 2007 the album had sold 220.000 copies worldwide.

The song title "Järnspöken" plays on an expression in Swedish, "Hjärnspöken", which literally means "brain ghosts" and refers to imagined problems, from fixations and unfounded fears to paranoia and hallucinations. "Hjärna" is Swedish for "brain", whereas "järn" means "iron", but the two words are pronounced the same way.
A limited edition of the album was also available. This included postcards sensitive to UV-light, a booklet printed on especially thin paper and a poster with the cover picture, among other things. The limitation was 9000 items.
The album was also available on vinyl, limited to 1500 items.
