Human is a studio album released by Rod Stewart on 12 March 2001 (see 2001 in music). It was Rod's nineteenth studio album and first, and only release, on Atlantic Records (Atlantic 7567-83411-2), a sister label to his previous label Warner Bros. Records.

It produced the singles "Run Back Into Your Arms", "I Can't Deny It", and "Don't Come Around Here". "I Can't Deny It" became a moderate hit and the album was certified gold by the British Phonographic Industry.[6]

Besides being Rod's first album on Atlantic, Human is his first album not to feature an original Stewart track. Of note is track 3, "Don’t Come Around Here", where Rod is joined by Helicopter Girl. The tracks were recorded at Metropolis Studios, London; Riverside Studios, Fort Lauderdale, Florida; Round One Studios, Los Angeles and Olympic Studios, London.
