Lust Lust Lust is the third album by The Raveonettes, released on November 12, 2007 in the UK, and February 19, 2008 in the US, with bonus tracks included.[6] The album was recorded completely by Sharin Foo and Sune Rose Wagner with no studio musicians. The Raveonettes used drum machines instead of real drums, and recorded most bass and non-guitar sounds with keyboards.[citation needed]

The album did not qualify for entry into the UK charts, as both physical formats contained 3D glasses.[citation needed]

Since its release Sune Rose Wagner has stated the album is his favorite Raveonettes' album, stating "I just think [Lust Lust Lust is] our strongest body of work to date. All of the songs are just really good and the sound just sort of melts into each other. It's also super minimal how we recorded it yet so full on at the same time."[16]
