Tourist is the second full-length album by British rock band Athlete, first released in early 2005 (see 2005 in music).

For their sophomore album, Athlete has shown a maturation in their musical style. While their Mercury Music Prize-nominated debut Vehicles and Animals was jolly Britpop, Tourist is slower, sadder and more sensitive (i.e. from the likes of Coldplay). "Wires", the first single taken from the album, entered an amazing number 4 position in the UK Singles Chart. The album itself climbed to #1 on the UK Album Chart on the week of its release.

Note: This album has been released with the Copy Control protection system in some regions.
