Automatic is the eighth studio album by futurepop duo VNV Nation, released in 2011. It was released on September 16, 2011 in Europe, and October 25, 2011 in North America.[6]

The band describe the album as being quite melodic, except for the track "Control", which is said to be a more club-sounding track. They have even described the album as being their favourite so far.

In the first week of release the album went straight into the German mainstream Media Control charts at number 8, the band's first top ten hit, spending 3 weeks in the chart; no. 66 in Austria, charting for 1 week; no. 77 in Switzerland, charting for 1 week; and no. 50 in Sweden, charting for 1 week.[7] It also went to number 1 in the Deutsche Alternative Charts, a position it occupied for 4 weeks.

"Control" was released as a free-download prior to the album's release. Although not being an official single, "Nova" received radio air-play in Germany.[8]
