''Blue'' is the second album by Third Eye Blind, written and recorded in 1999 and released on November 23, 1999. It is a moodier, darker album than the band's first, though the second single was the radio-friendly "Never Let You Go". The album debuted at #40 on the ''Billboard 200'', selling about 75,000 copies in its first week of release. ''Blue'' has been certified platinum by the RIAA, selling about 1.25 million copies in the U.S.

During the band's tour shortly after the release of ''Blue'', Kevin Cadogan was released from the band on January 25, 2000. Tony Fredianelli, who had some limited experience with the band previously, joined the band shortly thereafter. Cadogan subsequently sued Third Eye Blind for breach of contract, with a settlement of an undisclosed amount permanently ending the relationship.

According to former guitarist Kevin Cadogan, the original album title was to be ''Castling'', but was changed at the last minute. ''Blue'' was drummer Brad Hargreave's concoction. - Wikipedia
