Apartment Life is the second album released by an American indie pop band Ivy on Atlantic Records. It was re-released later the same year by Sony's 550 Music imprint with remixed versions of several songs. The 550 Music edition of Apartment Life also relocated the original front sleeve art of Dominique Durand applying make-up to the inside. The new front cover art consisted of Ms. Durand sitting alone at a small breakfast table, a digitally altered version of a photo that originally appeared on the inner booklet.
