Living Under June is the second album by Canadian singer/songwriter Jann Arden, released in August 1994 (see 1994 in music).

"Could I Be Your Girl", "Insensitive" and "Good Mother" were all significant hits for Arden in Canada, with "Wonderdrug," "Unloved" and "Looking for It (Finding Heaven)" also becoming Canadian adult-contemporary hits. "Insensitive" was Arden's biggest hit internationally, entering the Top 40 in several countries, including Italy and the United States (#12 on the Billboard Hot 100). In the U.S., "Could I Be Your Girl" was also a minor adult contemporary chart hit (#33). Total worldwide sales for this album come to 1.3 million, with 600,000 Canadian, and 500,000 US.

Jackson Browne sings as a duet on "Unloved".

The video for "Good Mother", directed by Jeth Weinrich, won the Juno Award for Video of the Year at the 1996 Juno Awards. Weinrich also directed the video for "Insensitive", which was a nominee for the same award, but did not win, at the 1995 Juno Awards.
