Trickle is the second and most recent album from English trip hop band Olive.


Following the band's debut album Extra Virgin and a subsequent promotional tour, keyboard programmer Robin Taylor-Firth left the band. Also during this time the UK arm of record label RCA lost interest in supporting the band; as a result, Olive was dropped from the RCA roster.[3]

By this time, the follow-up album had been completed, including a cover of the 1975 UK number-one single "I'm Not in Love" by 10cc (chosen partially as an attempt to obtain better favour with RCA). However, Olive then signed with Maverick Records, after reportedly being discovered by label founder Madonna when she attended one of their concerts in Germany;[3] initially, the band were recruited for a contribution to the soundtrack to the Madonna film The Next Best Thing, and a recording contract resulted from the contact.[4]

"I'm Not in Love" became the band's contribution to the February 2000-released soundtrack, and Trickle was subsequently released in May; "I'm Not in Love" then also became the lead single (and only single) released from the album in June.
