Charango is a 2002 album by the British group Morcheeba, which also appeared as a limited edition 2-CD version with a second CD containing instrumental versions of all the tracks. The song 'Undress Me Now' was intended as a single, but was cancelled, despite the creation and release of an expensive, erotic Balinese-inspired CGI video.

The Japanese version includes a bonus track, "I'd Rather Kill Us (Than Watch You Leave)",[1] also present on the "Way Beyond" single.[2]

Singles[edit]

Singles released included "Otherwise" and "Way Beyond". A planned release of "Undress Me Now" was abandoned. However, a promotional video was made which showed Skye Edwards in a Balinese-inspired room with actors digitally programmed into the video depicting "the art of love-making".[citation needed]
