Suitcase (1994) is the debut solo album by Neil Arthur.

Before the release of the album in 1994, the song "One Day, One Time" had been released as Arthur's debut solo single in 1992, but failed to chart. However it was a radio hit.[1] When the album surfaced, it failed to chart within the UK Top 100. Despite the lack of commercial success from the album, the second and final single "I Love I Hate" peaked at #50 in the UK in 1994, and lasted within the Top 100 for two weeks.[2]

In January 2013, Arthur was interviewed for the StevoMusicMan wordpress website, and was asked about the Suitcase album. The interviewer asked if Arthur felt strange working on an album without his Blancmange partner Stephen Luscombe, and what he learnt from the project. Arthur revealed: "No it didn't feel strange at all. I enjoyed making it. I'm still learning! I'll do another one day one time!"[3]
