"Rise & Shine" is a pop song by The Cardigans. It first appeared in 1992 on a limited edition 7" EP, The World According To..., and was the first Cardigans recording to feature Nina Persson (rather than Peter Svensson) as lead vocalist. Due to the positive response to the track, Persson became the group's permanent lead singer, and the song was re-recorded and released as the first single from their debut 1994 album Emmerdale. It was later re-recorded again for their second album Life and was re-released throughout Europe to promote the international version of the album.

International releases contained "Pikebubbles", a song omitted from the international release of Life; and "Cocktail Party Bloody Cocktail Party", an instrumental medley of songs from Life performed by Lars-Olof Johansson in the style of a lounge pianist, with background sound effects throughout to give the illusion of being performed in the midst of a cocktail party. The Life recording was also issued as a standalone single in Sweden, backed with previously-released tracks from Emmerdale and Life.
