Spin (stylized as spin) is the fifth studio album by American rock band Tigers Jaw. The album charted at number 13 on Billboard's Vinyl Albums chart. It was released on May 19, 2017 through Black Cement Records.
In 2013, most of Tigers Jaw's original members left the group, leaving vocalist/keyboardist Brianna Collins and vocalist/guitarist Ben Walsh as the remaining members. However, the original members returned to record Charmer in 2014, which was recorded with producer Will Yip. Spin was recorded with Yip at Studio 4 in Pennsylvania. Walsh said that he and Collins had discussed how to make the album and "what felt the most like Tigers Jaw … the initial version of the band was just two people writing and recording everything". It subsequently "made the most sense" to track the album as a two-piece. Discussing his relationship with the band, Yip said Spin was the better album, compared to Charmer, "not because of my input, just because of everyone’s openness and everyone trying to do the best thing for the record". He added that his goal when making albums with the band was to become a member of the band, aiming to get the best out of the group.
