XO is the fourth studio album by American singer-songwriter Elliott Smith, originally released in August 1998 via DreamWorks.

In 1998, after the success of his third studio album Either/Or (19997) and "Miss Misery" (a non-album single featured on the Good Will Hunting soundtrack in 1997), Smith signed to a bigger record label, DreamWorks Records.

Smith's first release for DreamWorks was later in 1998. The album was titled XO, and was conceived and developed while Smith wrote it out over the winter of 1997/1998, night after night seated at the bar in Luna Lounge. It was produced by the team of Rob Schnapf and Tom Rothrock. XO also contained some instrumentation from Los Angeles musicians Joey Waronker and Jon Brion.

XO contained a more full-sounding, baroque pop sound than any of his previous efforts, with songs featuring a horn section, Chamberlins, elaborate string arrangements, and even a drum loop on the song "Independence Day". His familiar double-tracked vocal and acoustic guitar style were still apparent while his somewhat personal lyrical style survived.

Two singles, "Waltz #2 (XO)" and "Baby Britain", were released from the album.

The album went on to peak at #104 on the US Billboard 200 and #123 on the UK album charts.

This album is a 2017 “Back To Black” reissue on 180 gram heavyweight vinyl with a printed inner sleeve and download code, pressed in Europe via Geffen Records.
