  • 2007 – Mr. DJ – First single release
  • 2009 – Hurricane – Second single release

  • 2011 – Heaven Is A Dancefloor – Fourth single; The first to feature Natalie on vocals
  • 2015 – S.E.X.Y. – Originally planned as a single around 2011 and one of Baby Alice's first songs to feature their new vocalist Natalie, a radio edit of "S.E.X.Y." leaked online in 2011 and a remix of the song was previewed by its' producer for the single and was also performed live by Baby Alice. In 2013, the song was uploaded to Baby Alice's YouTube as a gift to fans and was finally released as a digital single in 2015, without any of the planned remixes.
  • 2015 – Oldschool – Originally announced on Baby Alice's website for a March or April 2008 release as a single, the single was uploaded for free download on babyalice.se as a gift to the fans in 2009 and was finally released as a digital single in 2015.
  • 2015 – One World – Originally announced as a single in 2012, a preview was uploaded to Baby Alice's YouTube channel, though the single was delayed. It was finally released as a digital single in 2015, with a 90's Edit version being released as a separate single alongside it. This is also the last release to feature Natalie.
  • 2016 – Naked – Baby Alice's brand new summer song for 2016 and considered to be a follow-up to their hit single "Pina Colada Boy" from 2010, with a very similar style. It's also their first new song since Natalie's departure and Hanna becoming their new member in 2016. The full song was uploaded to their official YouTube channel and is now out as a single.

Note: Despite popular belief, Hanna is the real singer on "Pina Colada Boy", Natalie appearing as the singer in the video, which was shot only a few weeks after she joined. Natalie's first appearance on vocals with Baby Alice is with the song "S.E.X.Y", which despite being planned as the next release after "Pina Colada Boy", was instead only leaked online until 2013 when it was uploaded to their official YouTube page. Baby Alice released "Heaven is a dancefloor" in 2011 with Natalie on the vocals.

Note: Vocals for "Pina Colada Boy" were recorded by Hanna Adolfsson in 2008, but the video for "Pina Colada Boy" was recorded 2 years later featuring Natalie as the main character.
