Rise is an album by Daryl Braithwaite released in November 1990. The album reached No. 3 on the Australian ARIA Charts.[1] It was the best-selling album in Australia in 1991.[2] The album sold over 300,000 copies in Australia.[3]

Braithwaite was nominated for ARIA Award for Best Male Artist at the ARIA Music Awards of 1991 for Rise, but lost to Chain Reaction by John Farnham.

Braithwaite commenced a national tour on 26 December 1990 in Warrnambool.[4]

Although this album was not officially released in the U.S., it includes what would become Braithwaite's biggest stateside hit, "Higher Than Hope", which reached number 47 on the Billboard Hot 100. The tune appeared as the title track for a compilation album, Higher Than Hope, which was released to the American market in 1991.[5]

The album was certified 4x platinum in Australia in 2016.
