Vertigo is the second studio album by the English electronica duo Groove Armada, released in 1999 on the Jive Electro record label. It contains the well-known singles "At the River" (which was previously featured on the duo's debut album Northern Star) and "I See You Baby".

Release[edit]

"I See You Baby" has been used in advertisements for the Ford Fiesta and the Renault Megane, the latter of which caused a number of complaints due to the song's lyrical content.[3]
