Pieces of You is the debut album by singer/songwriter Jewel, released in 1995 (see 1995 in music) for Atlantic Recordings. Though it made little impact initially, "Who Will Save Your Soul" eventually received airplay and the album peaked at #4 on Billboard 200 almost exactly 2 years after its release. The album was[3] certified 12× Platinum for shipments of 12 million copies in the U.S making it one of the best selling debut albums ever. It was produced by Ben Keith, who has also produced works for artists such as Neil Young and Patsy Cline. Other hits include "Foolish Games" and "You Were Meant for Me" as well as the UK single "Morning Song."

After two years, the album was re-released featuring the re-recorded versions of "You Were Meant for Me" and "Foolish Games."
