"Seven Days in the Sun" is a song by Feeder, released as the second single from their Echo Park album. It was released in April 2001 and reached #14 in the UK Singles Chart.

The music video for the song featured band members Grant Nicholas, Taka Hirose, and the late Jon Lee on a beach shot in Cape Town, South Africa, implementing various methods of reeling in some girls. Grant dresses up as a bike salesman, and gets the girls' passports in exchange for bicycles, Taka, a waiter in order to "demonstrate" his cooking skills, and Jon, in drag, possibly to show them his feminine side. However, it is only Taka that succeeds to impress. Lyrically, the song also matches the theme in its video with that being holiday romances. Nine years since the video was shot, Feeder released via their Facebook page previously unreleased behind-the-scenes footage.

The track also appeared in the game Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec.

The video appeared in the "Indie 500" on VH2 in 2004 at #407. The chart was a rundown of the channels top 500 indie tracks of all time.

CD1 of the single features the popular "Just a Day", which was later released as a single itself.

There as also a Japanese EP with the same name and artwork as this single.
