I Am Kloot is the self-titled second album by English rock band I Am Kloot. Released in 2003, the album reached #68 on the UK Albums Chart[5] and yielded four singles and one download-only single. The download-only single "Proof" had a music video created for it by Krishna Stott, featuring actor Christopher Eccleston, which never received its intended, full release. A demo of "Proof" originally appeared as a B-side to "Morning Rain" in 2001. The album contains an extra song, hidden in the pregap, called "Deep Blue Sea," also released as a B-side on the "Life in a Day" single.

The singles "Life in a Day" and "3 Feet Tall" charted on the UK Singles Chart at #43 and #46 respectively.[5]

On 25 January 2005,[6] I Am Kloot became the first[7] album by I Am Kloot released in the United States. In March 2005, the band gave their first concert tour in this country.[6][7]
