Pilgrims Progress is the fourth studio album by Kula Shaker and was released on 28 June 2010. The first single to be taken from the album was "Peter Pan R.I.P", which was made available to download as an MP3 from the band's website on 22 April 2010.[1] A three track "Peter Pan R.I.P" EP was later made available on the iTunes Store on 18 June 2010.[2] The album's title is a deliberate misspelling of John Bunyan's story, The Pilgrim's Progress.

Pilgrims Progress was released in three different versions: a standard twelve track album; a limited edition deluxe box set, with a bonus CD of unreleased songs and demos; and a super deluxe box set, featuring the regular deluxe package, along with an a vinyl LP of the album and a T-shirt.[3] The super deluxe edition is limited to 300 copies and is signed by the cover artist Chris Hopewell.[3]

The CD album artwork for the standard twelve track album erroneously lists three bonus tracks that do not actually appear on the album.
