Uncover Me is the seventh album from Canadian singer-songwriter Jann Arden, released in 2007. "Counterfeit Heart" is the only track written by Jann Arden (co-written with SHeDAISY's Kristyn Osborn). Three additional tracks from these sessions, "Moon River", "What the World Needs Now", and "End of the World", are available from her Myspace site. The album was her best selling-record in Canada in a decade.

Lead single "Bring the Boys Home" (originally by Freda Payne) became a Top 10 hit in her homeland. Further airplay singles "At Seventeen", "California Dreamin'" and "Son of a Preacher Man" were made popular by Janis Ian, the Mamas and the Papas, and Dusty Springfield respectively. Other covers include "Peace Train" by Cat Stevens, "Love is a Battlefield" by Pat Benatar, "You're So Vain" by Carly Simon, "Downtown" by Petula Clark and "Solitaire" by Neil Sedaka.
