North is a 2003 album by Elvis Costello. It reached 44 in the UK album charts, 57 in the US charts and No. 1 in the US Traditional Jazz charts.

Coming after the return-to-form rock'n'roll of When I Was Cruel, North is an intimate album of ballads, reportedly inspired by Costello's relationship with Diana Krall. The album received mixed reviews.

A limited edition of the album also contains a DVD with two solo piano performances by Costello ("North," "Fallen") and a promo video for "Still." There is also a code included inside the package for a free download of the outtake title track "North," which is provided in the Windows Media Audio (.wma) format.
