The Ol' Razzle Dazzle is the third studio album by Australian singer-songwriter Missy Higgins, and was released by Eleven on 1 June 2012. Higgins began work on the album after a quiet retreat from the industry to refocus her life on other pursuits, including attending University and living in a share house. After playing Lilith Fair in the summer of 2010, Higgins decided to come back to music and worked with fellow singer/song-writer Butterfly Boucher, who helped co-produce The Ol' Razzle Dazzle with Nashville producer/engineer Brad Jones. The album was made available for pre-order on April 26, 2012.[1]

The first single from the album, "Unashamed Desire", was released on April 23, 2012 with an accompanying video.[2]

The album debuted at #1 on the ARIA Albums Chart the week of 12 June 2012. It is now Higgins' third straight number-one album. Higgins now ties Delta Goodrem, Olivia Newton-John and Kylie Minogue for the second-most Australian number-one albums by an Australian female artist. Only Kasey Chambers has done better, with four number-one ARIA albums.
