40 Days is the debut full-length album from Canadian folk trio The Wailin' Jennys. The lineup of the group at the time was Ruth Moody, Nicky Mehta, and Cara Luft. This was the last recording to feature Luft, who left the group the following year.
Although the title, 40 Days appears as a line in the song "Something to Hold Onto", and traditionally has religious significance it was chosen for another reason. The title is actually the number of days it took the Jennys to record and refine the album and is a tribute to the experiences encountered during that time.
The album features three tracks contributed by each the band's three songwriters and covers of Neil Young's "Old Man" and John Hiatt's "Take It Down". The group rounds out the collection with the traditional farewell, "The Parting Glass".
The album received the 2005 Juno Award for "Roots & Traditional Album of the Year by a Group".
In 2015, a cover of "One Voice" was recorded for the animal rights documentary film A Dog Named Gucci by Norah Jones, Aimee Mann, Susanna Hoffs, Lydia Loveless, Neko Case, Kathryn Calder, and Brian May.
