The Hives Cover Blue Swede’s ‘Hooked on a Feeling’

    The Hives released have released a cover of fellow Swedish rock band Blue Swede’s 1974 hit ‘Hooked on a Feeling’ for Spotify Singles. Listen to it below.

    “I think there’s a synergy effect of Swedish music having made it abroad, and you feel like it’s possible,” lead singer Pelle Almqvistn said in a statement. “We can’t make it more perfect than the original is, so we went the other way instead: ruined it, but made it sound exciting.”

    The Hives’ most recent album, The Death of Randy Fitzsimmons, came out last year.
