"K.K. Swing" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It uses a down tempo drum kit, a thumping bass, a vibraphone in some parts, and a wandering woodwind instrument. Swing music, the genre mentioned in the title, originated in the 1920s in the United States with influences from jazz and classical music. The overall song is particularly indicative of the 1940s crooner style of swing by musicians such as Mel Tormé and Count Basie.

Album cover[edit]

The album cover for "K.K. Swing" features K.K. Slider in a tuxedo holding a silver trombone. K.K.'s appearance here might be a reference to Glenn Miller, an American jazz composer and trombonist who is featured similarly on the covers of his records. In New Leaf, text next to K.K. reads "Swing," which was changed to the actual title of the song in New Horizons.
