Gal Costa is the first solo album by the Brazilian singer Gal Costa, released in 1969. It was ranked the 80th best Brazilian album of all time by the Brazilian Rolling Stone magazine. Considered one of the most representative records of the countercultural Tropicália movement, the album features songwriting by various artist associated with the movement, with whom Costa had previously worked with in the 1968 collaboration album Tropicália: ou Panis et Circencis.

She recorded an album of breezy bossa nova duets with Veloso in 1967, which served as both of their debut albums. Soon after, Costa became a part of the revolutionary musical movement known as Tropicália. And by 1969, Gal was one of the most potent and popular voices in that group, scoring nationwide hits like Divino, Maravilhoso and Não Identificado while also pushing her sound to the extremes of psychedelic rock. See the second album she released that year, Gal, for a dose of some of the era’s wildest sound.
