Crash and Burn is the third studio album by John Foxx and Louis Gordon, released in 2003. The duo did a series of live performances to promote the album, as well as supporting The Human League on their "Very Best Of" tour the same year.[1]

The album was re-released on 29 November 2010 as a double-disc edition with the original tracks remastered and a bonus disc featuring five previously unreleased tracks, namely "Labyrinth Generator", "Storm Warning", "Broadway Submarine", "Dust And Light (Live)" and "Invisible Women V2 (Live)", as well as material from 2003's limited edition "Drive EP". The accompanying booklet was expanded to twenty pages, and includes all of the lyrics.

A similar double disc edition of Foxx and Gordon's album Sideways was also released on the same date.
