Siberia is the tenth studio album by Echo & the Bunnymen. It garnered generally positive reviews, with some commentators calling it their best work since Ocean Rain, despite it being the first to not reach the UK Top 75.

The track "Of a Life" is noteworthy because the chorus has the line, "I want a song to learn and sing/of a life requited", which name-checks their 1985 compilation album Songs to Learn and Sing.
