Captain is the debut release by Scottish rock band Idlewild, released in January 1998. Although the number of tracks would normally class the release as an EP, Captain is commonly known as a mini-album.[1][2] Guitarist Rod Jones notes that the album "was a sort of introduction to Idlewild."[3]

The album was produced by Paul Tipler in the first week of October 1997 at River Studios, London, and released through Deceptive Records.

In an interview in 2007, Roddy Woomble spoke about the album, stating that he:

was singing in an American accent, y’know! Of course it’s how we found our feet – I was deeply into Tom Barman, and even though he’s Belgian he sang in an American accent, and I thought if he could do it so could I. But after the first album, I found another voice, my own voice.[4]

The album was played in full, alongside Make Another World, on December 21, 2008.
