Circles Around the Sun is a 2012 album by United States indie/roots folk band Dispatch. It is their fifth full-length studio album, the first recorded in over a decade.[2] Speaking with Songfacts.com, the band's vocalist and guitarist Chad Urmston said how it felt recording with Dispatch after all that time: "It's always challenging to put an album together with three different song writers. But being 12 years older and taking all that time away helped as we had a better appreciation for each other."[3] The pre-order was made available on June 5, 2012. The pre-order included various bundle packages, and a download of the track "Josaphine".[4] Synthpop artist Adam Young of Owl City did additional programming on the album.[5]

The song "Circles Around The Sun" was featured in the 2012 video game Need for Speed: Most Wanted and a basic cable and satellite television networks Disney Channel and Disney Channel Asia, as well as Disney Channel original series, Girl Meets World, Stuck in the Middle, and Liv and Maddie.
