One Part Lullaby is the third album by The Folk Implosion. It was released on September 7, 1999 on Interscope Records. Despite being the band's major label debut and garnering mostly positive reviews, the album was regarded as a commercial failure. The underwhelming release, coupled with tensions between the two band members, would lead to John Davis's exit from the band in 2000. In a 2013 interview, Barlow looked back on the album as a "disaster".[3]

The band was subsequently dropped from Interscope, and Barlow would later reintroduce the band with Alaska! members Russ Pollard and Imaad Wasif as The New Folk Implosion.

The song "Kingdom of Lies" was featured in the Danny Boyle film A Life Less Ordinary (1997). "Free to Go" was featured on the soundtrack to the Academy Award-winning film American Beauty. The song "One Part Lullaby" was featured in the film Adaptation. (2002).
