Turn It On is the third studio album released by Boyzone frontman and Irish singer-songwriter Ronan Keating. The album was released on 17 November 2003, a week after the release of the lead single, "Lost for Words". The album became the worst performing album of Keating's career to date, only peaking at #21 on the UK Albums Chart. The album spawned two further singles: a cover of Kenny Rogers' "She Believes (In Me)" and a duet with American country superstar, LeAnn Rimes, "Last Thing on My Mind", which both became top ten hits in the United Kingdom.


Following the success of Destination, and the four top ten singles which were released from it, Keating quickly returned to the studio in an attempt to record a follow-up which would replicate the success of Destination. Hooking up with producer Mark Taylor, who had at the time given chart-topping success to Spanish singer-songwriter Enrique Iglesias, Keating also collaborated with long-time collaborators Steve Robson and Steve Mac, as well as writing two songs with former co-writer Gregg Alexander. He also hooked up with American country superstar LeAnn Rimes, who at the time was also signed to his record label, Polydor, to record the duet "Last Thing on My Mind". He also recorded an updated version of "This is Your Song", one of four main recordings of the track, which have featured on Keating's releases across the years. The British version of the album contains three additional tracks, including the hidden track "Getting Started", while the Latin American version of the album features the duet "The Flight", featuring Latin superstar Zucchero, and an updated version of "When You Say Nothing at All", featuring Spanish singer-songwriter Paulina Rubio, which was later released in the United Kingdom as the B-side to the single "Father & Son". Certain copies of the album omit the hidden track "Getting Started", and only include the two international bonus tracks, "I Wouldn't Change a Thing" and "Give You What You Want". Copies can be found with both a blue interior or an orange interior; these are reflected by release territory.
