On September 28, 2004, Slean released her fourth album, Day One. Here Slean's piano takes a less important spot for the first time in her career.

The up-tempo title track "Day One", and "Mary", a song about Slean's grandmother, were released as the second and third singles.


In October 2006, Slean released a mostly-live album, Orphan Music, which consists of songs recorded live at Toronto's Harbourfront Theatre and Vancouver's East Cultural Centre.
