Lovelife is the third album by English alternative rock band Lush. On this album, the band moved away from their earlier dream pop/shoegazing style and embraced a more Britpop-oriented sound. The album was produced by Pete Bartlett and the band at Protocol Studios in London, and engineered by Giles Hall.

Jarvis Cocker from Pulp sang a duet with Miki Berenyi on the song "Ciao!"
