Get Away From Me is the two-disc debut album from singer-songwriter Nellie McKay. It was released on February 10, 2004 by Columbia Records. McKay insisted on Columbia releasing this album as a two-disc set even though all of its content could fit on a single disc. On iTunes, a clean version was made available which removes the profanities found on some of the songs like "Sari".

A later DualDisc version was released on March 29, 2005; this edition features a DVD side with a live concert, 5.1 audio, and two previously unreleased tracks, "John-John" and "Teresa." The CD side features both discs of the previous release as one continuous album.
