“John Carter Cash, Johnny Cash’s son, was in talks to record and produce an acoustic EP with us at Johnny Cash’s very own Cabin Studios in the US. We demoed some potential songs yet we ultimately never did this recording. This song somewhat just stuck with us,” remembers singer Jyrki 69. “It wasn’t complete without a female touch though, which is why we asked our good friend Kat Von D to sing on it. It’s my personal favourite [on the album].”

“It’s always such a pleasure working with THE 69 EYES boys. I’ve been such a huge fan of their music for so long. ‘This Murder Takes Two’ is such a special song. Even though it’s not the typical style of music that I am used to singing to, it was so much fun stepping out of my comfort zone. Jyrki has a beautiful way of sprinkling goth romance onto everything he does, even when it’s a western style song,” enthuses Kat Von D about the result.
