She has appeared on Swedish musician Kleerup's self titled album, contributing vocals to the track "Until We Bleed". She also worked with Röyksopp on their album Junior, contributing vocals to "Miss It So Much".
Lykke has become increasingly popular with indie music fans and took her particular flavor of music more mainstream with an appearance on Last Call with Carson Daly on February 18, 2009. She has received a great deal of notoriety for her cover of "Knocked Up", originally recorded by Kings of Leon who had approached Lykke to cover a song of her choice, and "Gifted" in which she performs with Kanye West.

A remixed version of her song "I'm Good, I'm Gone" was featured in the film Sorority Row (2009). The song "Possibility" was written for the film New Moon (2009). Lykke had been asked to write a song to the film soundtrack but she was reluctant to commit to the project. It was after she had seen an early screening of the movie that she decided she wanted to contribute to the soundtrack. The soundtrack was released on 16 October 2009.
