Borrowed Heaven is the fourth studio album by Irish Celtic folk-rock band The Corrs, released through Atlantic Records on 31 May 2004. The album was produced by Olle Romo.

The band released three singles from this album: "Summer Sunshine," "Angel," and "Long Night." A remix version of "Goodbye" was released as a download-only single in 2006. Other notable tracks include the title track "Borrowed Heaven," which featured an appearance from Ladysmith Black Mambazo, and "Time Enough For Tears," which was penned by U2's Bono.

Commercial performance[edit]

The album was a great success in their homeland Ireland where it peaked at number 1 with all three singles entering the Irish music charts. The album was greeted with success in western Europe, charting in nearly every country. Success in eastern Europe was varied from number 1 chart positions to not charting at all.

The Corrs set off on the Borrowed Heaven Tour in July 2004, taking the band to Europe and United States. This would be the Corrs' last tour before taking an extended hiatus in 2006 to raise families and embark on solo careers.
