Go Fly a Kite is the fifth studio album by Ben Kweller, which was released on February 7, 2012. This is his first album since splitting with former label ATO Records.


In a review for VZ Magazine, Nicholas Moffitt said, "Fans of Kweller and Power Pop will like Go Fly A Kite" but later added, "I just wish Kweller were more daring."[3] The AllMusic review called it "a refreshing album on a number of levels" because of Kweller's inclusion of "the detailed notes on how to play each song along with the lyrics...keeping nothing, not even the chord progressions, secret."[4]
