A Different Kind of Weather

A Different Kind of Weather is the third and final studio album by English band the Dream Academy. It was released on 15 June 1990 by Reprise and Blanco y Negro Records. The album saw the return of David Gilmour as the main producer, six years after he had produced their debut album. However, the album failed to enter the charts, despite the band performing their first and only tour of the United Kingdom to promote the release of this album in 1991.
