Circles Around the Sun is a 2012 album by United Statesindie/roots folk band Dispatch. It is their fifth full-length studio album, the first recorded in over a decade. 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." The pre-order was made available on June 5, 2012. The pre-order included various bundle packages, and a download of the track "Josaphine". Synthpop artist Adam Young of Owl City did additional programming on the album.
