Belladonna is a 2005 studio album by the Canadian singer-songrwtiter and producer Daniel Lanois who, according to his website, took the techniques he developed with Brian Eno and went on to produce career albums for Bob Dylan, Peter Gabriel, and Emmylou Harris. This journey comes full circle on Belladonna, an instrumental record that captures the often tense emotional dynamics of Eno's pioneering releases. Dense textures evolve into delicate Mexican melodies, capturing the disquieting serenity of American southwest landscapes. This is Lanois' self-proclaimed defining moment.[1]

One track on the album, "The Deadly Nightshade", had earlier been released on a 1996 album by Geoffrey Oryema as "LPJ Christine", although the version on Belladonna is without Oryema's vocals.
