Songbird is a compilation album by American singer Eva Cassidy, originally released in May 1998 via Blix Street Records.

Songbird is a compilation album of songs by Eva Cassidy, released in 1998, two years after her death in 1996. Five of the original album’s tracks ("Wade in the Water", "Wayfaring Stranger", "Songbird", "Time is a Healer" and "I Know You by Heart") are from Cassidy's 1997 album, Eva by Heart. Four tracks ("Fields Of Gold", "Autumn Leaves", "People Get Ready" and "Oh Had I a Golden Thread") are from her 1996 album, Live at Blues Alley. The remaining track, "Over the Rainbow", is from the 1992 album The Other Side.

Eva Cassidy was a singer and guitarist known for her interpretations of jazz and blues. She died of melanoma in 1996.

Two years after the album's release in 1998, Cassidy's music was brought to the attention of British audiences when her versions of "Fields of Gold" and "Over the Rainbow" were played by Mike Harding and Terry Wogan on BBC Radio 2. Following the overwhelming response from the public, a camcorder recording of "Over the Rainbow", taken at Blues Alley in Georgetown, Washington, D.C. by her friend Bryan McCulley, was shown on BBC Two's Top of the Pops 2. Shortly afterwards, Songbird climbed to the top of the UK Albums Chart. It ended up being the eighth biggest-selling album of 2001, has been certified 6× Platinum by the British Phonographic Industry and has to-date sales of 1.91 million.

This album is a 2014 reissue on 180 gram black vinyl with a printed inner sleeve, pressed in Europe via Blix Street Records.
