The Singles is a compilation album by English electronic music duo Basement Jaxx, released on 21 March 2005. There are two new tracks on this album, these being "Oh My Gosh" and "U Don't Know Me", which were both released as singles in 2005. "Do Your Thing" was previously included in the 2001 Rooty album, but with the release of this compilation album, the single was finally released in the UK after the two aforementioned singles. The only single not to be featured on the compilation was "Get Me Off" from the Rooty album.

Later editions of The Singles, included the "JaxxHouz" radio edit of "U Don't Know Me", in place of the original album version. A special edition of the release included a second disc of previously unreleased material.
