Censored Colors is the third full-length album from Alaskan experimental rock band Portugal. The Man. The album was released through a partnership with Equal Vision Records on September 16, 2008. This partnership is not a traditional record contract, as the band "could work at their own pace and be intimately involved in all factors of their recording career."[6]

The album leaked onto the Internet on August 25, 2008. The following day, the band posted a blog entry discussing the leak and their support of music downloading, encouraging their fans to download, share, and give feedback about the album.[7]
