White Lilies Island is the second album by Natalie Imbruglia. It was released in Europe and Australia in late 2001 and in the United States on March 5, 2002. The name of this album comes from the location of Imbruglia's home in Windsor.
Early copies of the UK release had copy protection software by Cactus Data Shield that was supposed to prevent users from ripping the album's tracks to their computer. The disc also contained poor quality versions of the tracks that were hidden on the disc that would play in place of the normal tracks when the album was played on a PC. The copy protection also caused conflicts in some other CD playing devices from skipping audio and tracks to rendering the entire album unplayable as well as a host of other problems. .
Despite missing the UK top 10 the album sold over 150,000 copies. The US release saw limited success but again sales of around 200,000 have been reported. Around the world White Lillies Island has sold 1.5 milion copies
