Ocean Songs is the fourth major album by Australian rock band Dirty Three, released in March 1998 by Touch and Go Records. The album was recorded at Electrical Audio, Chicago, United States, during August and September 1997. The cover art was designed by guitarist Mick Turner. On some tracks David Grubbs plays piano and harmonium.
A special release version was issued by their UK record label Bella Union in 2005 that contained the original album along with a live DVD.
In 2005, the album was performed live in London in its entirety as part of the All Tomorrow’s Parties-curated Don’t Look Back series, a performance that was later repeated in Barcelona and Mt Buller, Australia and as part of the 2009 ATP New York Festival (curated then by The Flaming Lips).
