Samson & Delilah is the second studio album by English recording artist V V Brown, released on 9 September 2013 on Brown's YOY Records. Brown initially had planned to follow up her critically acclaimed debut album with Lollipops and Politics, promoting the release of the album with a debut single. The album was later shelved, in part due to do Brown's own wishes.

Samson & Delilah, technically her third album (although only her second to be released) is a strikingly genuine foray into electronic music that merely winks at its inspirations (Annie Lennox, Kate Bush, Grace Jones, Madonna, Queen) rather than out right steals from them. This is the true progression of an artist, and what it gives me is a glimpse into the way Vanessa Brown works on things. Samson and Delilah is a concept album loosely based upon the Bible story of the same name. The lyrics and pacing of the record do not necessarily follow the exact plot, although there are hints and glimpses that serve as a cohesive glue for otherwise disparate pieces of work. Generally speaking, this is an album of betrayal, regret, and pain. The album opens with the stellar Substitute for Love, which pulsates delicately behind a spiritual and operatic performance from Brown.
