Tookah is the sixth studio album recorded by Icelandic singer-songwriter Emilíana Torrini, released in September 2013 via Rough Trade Records.

It was produced by Dan Carey over three years, from late 2011 to summer 2013. 

The songs were influenced by her recent baby boy and after a long period of touring and a lot of the songs were built around jamming in the studio with her producer Dan and other musicians. Torrini said "...After you have a baby there comes a time where you need to go out with your girlfriends and dance. I went to the studio with Dan and did a dance track “Speed of Dark.” We danced. It had to be on the record it was a part of the journey. From that the sound of the record was born, it was a challenge bringing it all together."

The first single released for the album was Speed of Dark.

Tookah received positive reviews from music critics. On Metacritic, which assigns a normalised rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 71, based on 12 reviews, indicating "generally favorable reviews." Gemma Hampson of Clash magazine praised the album's production, writing that "There's something magical and mystical about 'Tookah'. A thread of electro runs through these nine tracks, introducing a whole new musical landscape to this singer's stunningly beautiful songs. (...) Every track gives you something new and exciting, while holding tightly on to Emilíana’s flawless voice and melodies."

Check out a couple of tracks from the album: Tookah, Speed of Dark, Home, Autumn Sun, Animal Games and Blood Red.
