Sunburnt is an album officially by Martin Phillipps and The Chills, though more correctly by Martin Phillipps alone. Owing to visa problems, the usual Chills line-up were not able to take part in the recording sessions, and session musicians Dave Gregory and Dave Mattacks appeared on all tracks, with Phillipps handling vocal, keyboard, and guitar parts, as well as some of the percussion. Craig Leon, the album's producer, also appeared on several of the tracks.[1]

The album was recorded at Doghouse Studios in Oxfordshire in August and September 1995, and mixed and mastered at Rockfield Studios in Wales and Townhouse Studios in London.[1] It was released by Flying Nun Records in 1996.
