Give It All Away is the debut album by Scottish-American singer/songwriter Ben Jelen, released in 2004 via Maverick Records.

The lead single, "Come On", peaked at #58 on the Billboard Hot Singles Sales chart and failed to appear on the Billboard Hot 100, despite Jelen being featured on TRL in January 2004.[2] Give It All Away subsequently debuted and peaked at #113 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, #1 on Billboard's Top Heatseekers chart[3][4] and #13 on the Top Internet Albums chart.[5] Jelen and Maverick Records subsequently parted ways and Jelen released his subsequent material independently until he was signed by Linda Perry's Custard Records.

The song "Setting of the Sun" is featured on an episode of Smallville, and "Falling Down" is featured on an episode of Las Vegas. The song "Come On" is sampled in a trailer for Monsters University.
