"Bruised Water" is a song by trance artist Chicane. It is a mashup of Natasha Bedingfield's song, "I Bruise Easily" with his own song, "Saltwater". The song was released on 25 August 2008 as a digital download.


"Bruised Water" will be the first release from the revived Central Station Records in Australia. It was initially sent to radio in late 2008, but was never released as Central Station's parent company Destra Entertainment went into receivership. "Bruised Water" was released in the Netherlands by Armada Music in 2009.

Music video[edit]

The music video features a man carrying a mermaid, who appears to be unconscious without water, across the town. He asks the fellow towns people for their help to provide water for her. The video was shot along several streets of the city centre of Málaga, Spain.
