Ghost Stories is the debut studio album by English singer-songwriter Amanda Ghost. It was released on 22 August 2000 by Warner Bros. In the United States, it was released on 12 September 2000. Ghost began working on the album after she got signed to Warner Bros. by A&R executive Andrew Wickham. He offered her a record deal after listening to a CD demo of hers left with him by her manager Terry Slater.

Musically, Ghost Stories is predominantly an alternative rock album influenced by electronica and trip hop. It also incorporates elements of other genres, such as trance, breakbeat and classical music.

Amanda Ghost (born Amanda Louisa Gosein) is a singer and songwriter from Enfield, North London. After performing as a solo artist, she formed a band which performed under her name, and of which she was the lead singer. From February 2009 until December 2010, Ghost was president of Epic Records. Produced by Lukas Burton and Paul Staveley O'Duffy, Ghost Stories is predominantly an alternative rock album that incorporates elements of electronica and trance, as well as influences of classical music and trip hop. Four singles were released from the album; "Filthy Mind", "Glory Girl", "Silver Lining" and "Idol". The lead single, "Filthy Mind" peaked at number five on the Billboard Dance Club Songs. Idol" reached number eighteen on the same chart.

Ghost Stories, her debut, is a journey, emotionally and aurally. Each cut takes a moment to grab you, but just as you're reaching to hit rewind because you have got to hear that last song one more time, the next track grips you and you can't change it. Despite the coldness of some techno touches (the captivating "Blind Man" could be a big dance anthem, and "Numb" is like a techno/lounge march), there is something innately human about the entire album - vocals, lyrics, and production. This is a solid, confident debut that will be difficult to follow up, but Amanda Ghost will not be a one-hit wonder; this album is testament to that.

Amanda Ghost is a British recording artist of Indian and Spanish descent who writes dramatic, bittersweet and beautiful pop songs. She is also the woman behind James Blunt's recent hit single 'Beautiful'. I like neither Blunt, nor that song. I am, however, irresistably drawn to this album, Amanda Ghost's 2000 debut Ghost Stories
