Angus & Julia Stone is the self-titled, third full-length album by Australian singer-songwriter duo Angus & Julia Stone. It was released on 1 August 2014 in Australia through EMI Music Australia, and on the same day in the United States through American Recordings. Its release was preceded by the singles "Heart Beats Slow", which peaked at #37 in Australia, and "A Heartbreak". The videos for both songs as well as a video for "Get Home" were directed by Jessie Hill.
American producer Rick Rubin helped reunite the duo and co-produced the album. Rubin said of the experience: "This album is extraordinary; Angus and Julia are truly unique musicians. They are authentic and pure people who do things from the heart. I've never worked with anyone like them before." The album has been said to contain "blended harmonies [...] and more experimental guitar textures".
The album is the highest-charting by the duo to date, reaching the top 10 in several countries including France, Germany, the Netherlands and New Zealand. With an average of 67 based on 7 reviews on review aggregator Metacritic, Angus & Julia Stone received generally favorable critical reception.
