Ultrabeat - The Album is the debut self-titled album by the British dance act Ultrabeat. It was released on 10 September 2007 (four years after their first single) with All Around The World records. The album was a major chart success in the UK Album Chart as it reached #8 in its first week.
The long-anticipated album comes over four years after their first single, Pretty Green Eyes
, was released. According to AATW
, the album was delayed for so long because Ultrabeat
kept producing new tracks and re-changing the album to accommodate the new material, and also going away to places such as Miami
delayed the album as well. It was originally, supposed to be called "Better Than Life - The Album" and was meant to be released sometime before the Better Than Life
single. There was many speculation after this over whether an Ultrabeat album would materialise, until the summer of 2007 when AATW announced on their website that it was getting released in September 2007, and would include all their hits and more. Some of the tracks that never made it on to the album were songs called "Stay With Me", and Re-Con
songs "Free Again" and "Let It Show". When the album was released, it charted at #8 in its first week and stayed in the Top 20 for a further three weeks, and the release of the album coincided with Ultrabeat supporting Cascada on their tour of the UK. The Album was released in Australia on 8 December 2007, with Central Station
records, and in the UK, I Wanna Touch You
was the next single released after the album, which came out at the start of 2008.
