Blue Sunshine is the only studio album by the British supergroup the Glove, released in 1983 by Wonderland Records/Polydor. This album mainly served as a diversion for Robert Smith and Steven Severin when both of them were under heavy stress in their respective bands the Cure and Siouxsie and the Banshees. Since Smith was prohibited from singing in another band by his record company, he and Severin recruited Zoo dancer Jeanette Landray (a former girlfriend of Banshees drummer Budgie) to sing the majority of the tracks on the original release; Smith only sang on "Mr. Alphabet Says" and "Perfect Murder". Other musicians involved in this project were Andy Anderson (who later joined the Cure), Martin McCarrick (who later joined the Banshees), Ginny Hewes and Anne Stephenson.

Severin wrote the lyrics to all of the songs except "Like an Animal", "Sex-Eye-Make-Up", "Perfect Murder", which were written by Smith, and "Punish Me with Kisses", on which the two collaborated.

Two singles were taken from the album, "Like an Animal", and "Punish Me with Kisses".
