Colour My World is the sixth album released by Petula Clark in the US on Warner Bros. Records. It combines cover versions of popular songs of the era and original material, much of it written by Clark and Tony Hatch, who produced the recording and arranged it along with Johnny Harris and Frank Owens.

In the UK, where it was released on Pye Records, the original album release was withdrawn after a month to have Clark's current hit "This Is My Song" and its UK B-side: "The Show Is Over", added to the track listing. This revised edition of the album - (with the subtitle "Including "This Is My Song"") reached #16 on the UK album charts.[2] [3]

In the USA, the album entitled Color My World/Who Am I entered the Billboard 200 on February 18, 1967 and remained on the charts for 27 weeks, peaking at #49.[4]
