"Somewhere Else" is a song by Anglo-Swedish indie rock band Razorlight, and was featured as a bonus track on the 2005 re-release of their debut album "Up All Night". It was their first new material following that album and became their biggest hit to date in the United Kingdom when released as a single, reaching #2 in the UK Singles Chart. The track is primarily acoustic-driven, with a shimmering effect and gradual build-up, with an insistent chorus; "and I just can't help myself, I really really wish I could be somewhere else far from here".

Due to the time of the song's release, and the band's appearances at many festivals and events (including a headlining slot at the Carling Weekend: Reading and Leeds Festivals as well as Live 8 in 2005), it became something of a summer anthem.

The video features Johnny Borrell walking around various place in London, before returning to where he started at the beginning. A large portion of the video was filmed inside and outside the [ Northumberland Arms] pub.
