The Futureheads was The Futureheads self-titled debut album. It was released on 12 July 2004 and spawned the singles "First Day", "Decent Days and Nights", "Meantime", and "Hounds of Love" (a Kate Bush cover). The album received critical praise and was re-released as a special edition in 2005 featuring a DVD and coming with a slightly re-designed cover in pink rather than the standard LP's grey.

"Decent Days and Nights" and "Hounds of Love" were made available for the Rock Band platform on 9 March, 2010. "Decent Days and Nights" also appeared on the Burnout 3 soundtrack. "Meantime" was used in a second season episode of the hit TV series The O.C., and the film, Grandma's Boy.
