Breathe In is the second studio album (though the first to be released) by the British pop singer-songwriter Lucie Silvas, released by Mercury Records on 11 October 2004 in the United Kingdom. It was released in the Netherlands on 29 March 2005 and worldwide in April 2006.

The majority of the album was co-written by Silvas with Judie Tzuke, whom Silvas had previously been a backing singer for. The album also features a cover of Metallica's song "Nothing Else Matters" which was released as a single in Europe.

Singles[edit]

  • The first single from the album was "What You're Made Of", which charted at No. 7 in the UK Singles Chart.
  • "Breathe In" was the second single from the album, and is Silvas' highest charting UK single to date, peaking at No. 6.
  • "The Game Is Won" was the third single, released in May 2005, which peaked at No. 38.
  • The fourth single was "Don't Look Back", and it charted at No. 34. It shares its artwork and b-sides with "Nothing Else Matters".
  • The fifth and final UK single was "Forget Me Not", a rerecording of an old song from Silvas' first unreleased album of the same name. The single failed to reach the UK Top 100.
  • The final European single was "Nothing Else Matters", a cover of a Metallica song. It achieved success in the Netherlands, charting at No. 13. The cover and b-sides were the same as that of "Don't Look Back" in the UK.
