Company Of Strangers is the seventh solo album by Scottish-Australian singer Colin Hay. It was released in 2002 on Hay’s independent record label, Lazy Eye.

Colin Hay first landed on American shores as the front man and principal songwriter of the pop sensation Men at Work. With Hay’s wry songs and burnished vocals leading the way, they were responsible for a series of massive hits, such as “Down Under,” “Who Can It Be Now?” and “Overkill,” that defined pop music of the early eighties. Since Men at Work’s demise, Hay has released a series of solo albums, reunited his old band with astonishing success, and watched as his songs continue to connect with new fans the world over through his musical appearances on the hit TV shows ScrubsJAG, and The Larry Sanders Show.

On this re-issue of Colin’s 2002 album, Company Of Strangers, he concocts a powerful blend of acoustic guitars, rock and R&B styles, lush string arrangements, storytelling lyrics, and of course distinctive vocal melodies. Song highlights include the hard driving rocker, “I Got Woken Up”, the delicate “Company of Strangers” and the colorful “Beautiful World”, which was featured on the soundtrack to the hit TV show Scrubs.
