Courage is Paula Cole's fourth studio album. It marks her return to the music scene after nearly a decade-long hiatus. The album is a bit of a departure from her previous albums towards more of a jazz and folk sound this time. "14" was the first single from the album, while "Comin' Down" was released to Triple A radio in the US in early August. It also features the song "It's My Life" which was featured in Mercury automobile commercials.
