"The Box" is a single by the British electronica duo Orbital. Taken from their 1996 album In Sides, the single was released in 1996 and reached number 11 on the UK Singles Chart. Orbital claimed in a 2002 sleeve note that the single's video, which starred the Scottish actress Tilda Swinton, was "by common consent, the best video we've ever done". The promotional video won a silver sphere for the best short film at the San Francisco Film Festival and got nominated for the best video award at the 1997 Brit Awards. It also closed the Edinburgh Film Festival and opened the London Film Festival.
Part of the song was used in the Danny Boyle film, A Life Less Ordinary, but was not on the soundtrack.
"The Box" was released in two main versions, each divided into parts. The album version released on In Sides is in two parts, a slow ambient "part 1" and an upbeat "part 2". The longer single version is in four parts, of which the first has a similar arrangement to "part 2" of the album version. On the CD single (but not the 12" vinyl), the first three parts are segued/mixed together, though indexed separately.
The last part on the single contains a vocal version of "The Box", with additional vocals by Grant Fulton and Alison Goldfrapp. The lyrics were written by Fulton, who had also previously made an appearance writing and singing lyrics on an earlier Orbital single, "Belfast"/"Wasted".
