"Secrets" is an album recorded by British synthpop band The Human League. It was issued in 2001 by Papillon Records and was the Human League's first studio album in six years. As with their previous album "Octopus", the band was presented as a trio of singers Philip Oakey, Joanne Catherall and Susan Ann Sulley (credited by her married name "Susan Ann Gayle", which she would later drop professionally in October 2007), although band member Neil Sutton also contributed songwriting and keyboard parts. "Secrets" received a delayed release in the United States the following year.

The album contains sixteen tracks, seven of which are short, instrumental transitional compositions. Upon its release "Secrets" earned positive reviews from music critics, although commercial success was hampered due to the bankruptcy of Papillon (a division of Chrysalis Records) shortly after its release. The first single "All I Ever Wanted" returned the Human League to the UK singles chart after a five year absence peaking at number forty-seven.

After the collapse of Papillon Records; in 2003 a follow-up single from 'Secrets', "Love Me Madly?" was released privately by Nukove Records, a company set up especially to release Human League records. [ Van Bokhorst, Michiel [http://www.nukove-records.com/history.htm] ]
