The Juliet Letters is the 14th studio album by singer and songwriter Elvis Costello. Originally released in 1993, the critically acclaimed album peaked at No. 18 on the U.K. album chart.

The entire instrumental backing for The Juliet Letters is provided by The Brodsky String Quartet. Costello had become interested in classical music around the time of Spike and began attending classical concerts. One of the ensembles he enjoyed most was the Brodsky Quartet. Once Costello and the Brodskies got to know each other, they were keen on working together, eventually resulting in a full-length album.

Costello described The Juliet Letters as "a song sequence for string quartet and voice and it has a title. It's a little bit different. It's not a rock opera. It's a new thing." This long-out-of-print and much-requested vinyl release is now re-issued on 180-gram audiophile vinyl.
