Beautiful Life is the second album by Guy Sebastian. It was released 18 October 2004 on Sony BMG Australia and peaked at No. 2 on the ARIA Albums Chart.[2] It was followed by the Beautiful Life concert tour of Australia. During the 8-month course of creating the album, Sebastian travelled to the United States and Europe to work with various songwriters, including Brian McKnight, with whom he penned the song "Wait", and Robin Thicke, whom he co-wrote a number-one charting first single, "Out with My Baby", and "Fiend for You". "How", an original by Thicke, is also included. The album reached Platinum status in Australia and eventually shipped over 100,000 copies.[3]
