A Distant Shore is Tracey Thorn's first solo album, released in 1982. Recorded by Pat Bermingham for just £138, the album reached number two in the UK Indie Chart in 1983. All songs on the album were written by Thorn, except "Femme Fatale" – a cover version of The Velvet Underground song.
The track "Plain Sailing" coupled with a cover of The Monochrome Set's "Goodbye Joe" was released as a single in January 1983. The record became a long-term steady seller, especially after she became better known in the duo Everything but the Girl.
