In Blue is the third studio album by Irish pop rock band The Corrs, released in 2000 which saw the band become known in the United States. The title of the album comes from a lyric in the song "Give Me a Reason". As well as the UK number one single "Breathless", the album also contains new versions of "Radio" and "At Your Side" which had previously appeared on their previous album The Corrs Unplugged. Mutt Lange co-wrote three songs from the album and Tim Martin was the engineer for the album's tracks for their recordings at Westland Studios and Windmill Lane Studios in Dublin.

Several of the tracks were used in various television programmes and films: "Rebel Heart" as the theme for the TV miniseries of the same name; "One Night" in Mad About Mambo; "At Your Side" in Say It Isn't So and the trailer for the film The Holiday; and "All the Love in the World" in the film America's Sweethearts.
