Instinct is the second album by British singer Kavana. The album was recorded in Italy during the summer of 1998 and was produced by production team Absolute. The album spawned the singles "Special Kind of Something", "Funky Love" and "Will You Wait for Me". The album was released on 5 October 1998 by Virgin Records, released in Europe, Australia and Taiwan. The British release was postponed by the record label and was ultimately rescheduled for April 1999, however, Kavana was subsequently dropped from his label following poor sales of the three singles and the album was ultimately never released in the UK. The album was released digitally in the UK more than four years later on 1 March 2003.
