Dile al sol is Spanish pop rock band La Oreja de Van Gogh's debut album released by Sony Music Entertainment in May 1998. The album was very successful in Spain, selling more than 800,000 copies there.

This first album was recorded in Madrid between the months of July and August. The title track from this album, Dile al sol (Tell the Sun), was the one with which people began to know them, but it was not until Cuéntame al oído (Tell me in the ear) that the band became a success.
