Strength in Numbers is the third and final album from Leeds-based indie rock band The Music.

It comes in two formats, a regular CD (in a super jewel case) and a deluxe digipak Edition. The limited edition will feature two bonus tracks, "The Price" and "The Rain", but does not feature the hidden track "No Danger".

A website for the album was launched in April 2008.[6] It features a flash teaser video from video producer Chris Boyd. The video was also released on the band's YouTube channel.[7]

The site now features the option to sign up for extra content, with a 30-second live video of one of the songs from the new album, as well as a discussion forum and other minor features.

"Strength In Numbers" was released as a 3-format single on 9 June 2008.

"The Spike" was the second single released from the album,[8] with "Drugs" being released as a special limited edition third single sold exclusively through the band's official website.
