Midnight On Earthship is a 2012–13 album recorded by Christian rock band Falling Up. It is part of the Machine De Ella project, which also includes the concept album Hours and the novel, also titled Hours, written by lead-singer and producer, Jessy Ribordy. Midnight on Earthship, along with Hours, is Falling Up's sixth/seventh studio album. It was released over a period of time, having started on October 9, 2012. A new song was released every two weeks for approximately four months until all ten tracks were digitally released to the Machine De Ella members.[2] Once all of the tracks were recorded, physical copies of the album will be released.

In order to fund the creation of physical copies of both Hours and Midnight on Earthship, Falling Up launched a KickStarter. The funding was reached and exceeded the minimum amount by $2,340 on May 20, 2013.[3] The album cover was designed by Brian Lambert, and was unveiled on June 21, 2013.[4]

The album's official release came on July 15, 2013, where the physical and digital albums went up for sale on Falling Up's official website, iTunes, and other retailers.[5][6]
