"Found That Soul" is a song by the Manic Street Preachers, released on February 26, 2001 from the Know Your Enemy album. Writing credit was shared by all three members of the band, James Dean Bradfield, Sean Moore and Nicky Wire.

Launched on the same day as "So Why So Sad," this was the first sign of the Manics since the number-one hit "The Masses Against the Classes" thirteen months earlier. It reached a UK chart position of number 9 on March 10, 2001, at the same time as "So Why So Sad" reached number 8.

The CD also included versions of "Locust Valley" and "Ballad Of The Bangkok Novotel," whereas the 7" included a live version of "The Masses Against The Classes". "Ballad of the Bangkok Novotel" is entirely sung by Nicky Wire.

Less than 200 copies separated "Found That Soul" from "So Why So Sad" placing it 1 place lower at number 9, because the overwhelming majority of the sales that week were by the fans buying both.
