This is Hope (2004) is the third album from Scottish indie band Mull Historical Society.

This Is Hope was inspired by a two-month visit to the United States, ending in New Orleans. One of its songs is about the death of David Kelly[3] and the album also includes a recording of his grandmother.[4]

It also contains the single "How 'Bout I Love You More" which reached no. 37 in the UK charts.[5]
