Learning from Falling is the debut studio album by British singer-songwriter artist Lamya. The album included production by Nellee Hooper and Mark Ronson and entered the Top Heatseekers chart in the United States at #16.[1]

A remix of the first single "Empires (Bring Me Men)" reached #1 on the Billboard Hot Dance/Club Play chart.[2] The track "Black Mona Lisa" was covered by British R&B singer Maria Lawson on her eponymous album. A third single, "Never Enough", was only released as a promo.

All tracks were co-written by Lamya. "Pink Moon" is a cover of the Nick Drake song.
