Noir is the second studio album by William Control. It was released on June 8, 2010, and the only single, released a day after the album, was "I'm Only Human Sometimes". This was accompanied by a music video. The single's cover was rejected by online music retailer iTunes, who considered it 'unsuitable for minors'. Noir was written, produced and engineered by William Control, and recorded at Sleepy Hollow Studios, then mixed by Justin Armstrong and William Control at Robert Lang Studios in Seattle. Fans were invited down to Crowded Head Records to sing gang vocals for part of the album.
