"Isola" is an album released in 1997 by the Swedish band Kent. It was followed in 1998 by an English version, for which a new song, "Velvet", was recorded. The album name comes from the Italian word for "island", and is mentioned in the song "Oprofessionell"/"Unprofessional". The album is said to have been largely influenced by Radiohead despite the difference in its sound. The ending song from the album, 747, has become a fan favourite and is usually one of the songs Kent use to close their concerts.
