Something Real is Meg & Dia's second album which was released on August 8, 2006. After signing a deal with Doghouse Records the previous fall, they started recording in January 2006. This album contains both brand new songs, and revamped versions of their originally acoustic songs. Many songs draw inspiration from books such as East of Eden, Rebecca and Indiana.
