"Marble House" is the second single from The Knife's 2006 album Silent Shout. It was released in four different regions on four different labels. It features Swedish singer Jay-Jay Johanson. The music video was directed by Chris Hopewell.

Music video[edit]

Two music videos have been made for this song, both of which can be found on the deluxe edition of Silent Shout. One depicts an early 20th-century or late 19th-century family, presumably one in a British Colony in Asia. The second video depicts a day in the lives of a family of mice, who have built a fairly comfortable house behind a wall in a human house. It uses stop-motion animation.
