Our Version Of Events is the debut studio album by Scottish singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé, released in the United Kingdom on February 13, 2012 through Virgin Records. Sandé wrote every track on the album, saying that the key to a good song when writing is using "honesty" and "raw emotion".

Our Version Of Events debuted at number one on the UK Albums chart, selling 113,319 copies during the first week of its release.
