C'mon is the ninth full-length album by indie rock band Low. It was released on April 12, 2011 (April 11 in Europe) on Sub Pop records. The album was recorded at Sacred Heart Studio, a former Catholic church in Duluth, Minnesota, where the band previously recorded 2002's Trust.[12] The album includes guest contributions from Nels Cline (lap steel, guitar), Caitlin Moe of Trans-Siberian Orchestra (violin) and Dave Carroll of Trampled by Turtles (banjo).[13]

"Try to Sleep" and "Especially Me" were released by the band in advance of the album; "Try to Sleep" was made available through the band's mailing list in February 2011, while "Especially Me" was premiered on Pitchfork on March 25, 2011. A promotional video for "Try to Sleep" starring John Stamos and Melissa Haro and directed by Travis Schneider was released to coincide with the release of the album.[14] A second promotional video for "Especially Me", directed by Phil Harder was released on August 18, 2011.[15]

Uncut placed the album at number 33 on its list of "Top 50 albums of 2011".[16]

In June 2017, the song "Especially Me" featured in season 5, episode 8 ("Tied to the Tracks") of Netflix's Orange is The New Black.[17]
