Tightly Unwound (2008) is the seventh studio album by The Pineapple Thief, and their first album released by Kscope, since all previous Pineapple Thief releases were published by Cyclops Records. The album eventually reached number three in "Prog Archives' Members Albums of the Year" chart.[4]

KScope dedicated a microsite to the album before its release, containing a preview of the album in audio streaming, a picture gallery, desktop wallpapers, audio samples as a source for remixes, and more.

Those who were signed to the band's mailing list could get the acoustic version of Shoot First as a free-download track. On July 28, 2008, the band released Shoot First as a download EP. A video for the song, filmed by the acclaimed director Lasse Hoile (famous for his works with Porcupine Tree, Opeth, Dream Theater and Blackfield), premiered on the Tightly Unwound mini-site on July 31, 2008.[5]

Two tracks, And So Say All of You and The Sorry State, were originally written for the band's first and second Fruit and Veg Selection podcasts, respectively.
