Screamadelica is the third studio album by Scottish indie rock band Primal Scream, originally released in September 1991 via Creation Records in the UK and Sire Records in the US.

Primal Scream originally formed in 1982 in Glasgow by Bobby Gillespie (vocals) and Jim Beattie (guitar) who resigned from the band after the release of Sonic Flower Groove. The band performed throughout 1982–1984, but their career did not take off until Gillespie left his position as drummer of The Jesus & Mary Chain. The band were a key part of the mid-1980s indie pop scene, but eventually moved away from their more jangly sound, taking on more psychedelic and then garage rock influences, before incorporating a dance element to their sound.

Screamadelica was a significant departure from the band's early indie rock sound, drawing inspiration from the house music scene that was becoming popular at the time of its production. The band enlisted house DJs Andrew Weatherall and Terry Farley on production duties, although the album also contains a wide range of other influences including gospel and dub.

The album includes "Loaded", which was a top twenty hit single in the UK. Dance DJ Andrew Weatherall began remixing "I'm Losing More Than I'll Ever Have", from their previous album, and the resulting track disassembled the song, adding a drum loop from an Italian bootleg mix of Edie Brickell's "What I Am" and a sample from the Peter Fonda B-movie The Wild Angels.

The single "Movin' on Up" was the band's breakthrough hit in the United States.

Screamadelica was also influenced by the Beach Boys' album Pet Sounds (1966). Bobby Gillespie says that after discovering the album, their songs became much softer.

The distinctive album cover art was painted by Creation Records in-house artist Paul Cannell. Screamadelica was among ten album covers chosen by the British Royal Mail for a set of "Classic Album Cover" postage stamps issued in January 2010.

The album peaked at #8 on the UK Albums chart and is regarded by many music critics as a classic album, and one of the best albums released in the 1990s. Screamadelica also won the first Mercury Music Prize in 1992.

Check out the singles:  Loaded”; “Come Together”; “Higher Than The Sun”; “Don't Fight It, Feel It”; “Movin' On Up”; andDamaged”.
