An Appointment with Mr Yeats is the tenth studio album by The Waterboys, released on 19 September 2011 through W14/Proper Records. The album contains fourteen tracks, all of which are based upon the poetry of W.B. Yeats, a long term influence on lead-songwriter Mike Scott.

Scott premiered the tracks which would make up the album, as well as those produced previously, as part of the An Appointment with Mr Yeats concerts from 2010 onwards. Some shorter tracks such as Down By The Salley Gardens were either omitted entirely or provided as bonus tracks available for download only. [1]
