Elbow Beach is the third solo album by the British singer Louise. It was released in August 2000 and reached no.12 on the UK album chart.
After the success of the 1997 album 'Woman In Me', Louise married her longtime boyfriend, footballer Jamie Redknapp. After the honeymoon, Louise spent just under a year making what she claimed was her "most personal album to date". Titled 'Elbow Beach', it was named after the location of her honeymoon. Creatively, Louise was more involved in the process of this album than her previous two, co-writing all 12 tracks and co-producing most of them.
In July 2000, the single 2 Faced went straight into the charts at no.3, becoming Louise's highest charting single. However, despite the hype and critical praise, total sales for 'Elbow Beach' were weaker than her two previous albums and the album peaked at no.12 in August 2000. It was certified Silver by the BPI for sales of over 60,000 copies (in comparison to the Platinum certifications of her first two albums). The track 'Beautiful Inside' was released as a second single from the album, and peaked at no.13 in November 2000. A third single 'For your eyes only' had been selected and remixed, but the single was dropped due to the low charting of 'Beautiful Inside', the single mix which samples chic's le freak appears on louise's Myspace profile.

Famous quotes containing the words beach and/or elbow:
“We often love to think now of the life of men on beaches,at least in midsummer, when the weather is serene; their sunny lives on the sand, amid the beach-grass and bayberries, their companion a cow, their wealth a jag of driftwood or a few beach plums, and their music the surf and the peep of the beech-bird.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
“Conrade. Here, man, I am at thy elbow.
Borachio. Mass, and my elbow itched; I thought there would a scab follow.”
—William Shakespeare (15641616)
