Fairytale is the second album from British singer-songwriter Donovan. It was first released in the UK on 22 October 1965 through Pye Records (catalog number NPL 18128). The US version of Fairytale was released by Hickory Records (catalog number LPM 127, LPS 127 ) in November 1965 with a slightly different set of songs. Peter Eden and Geoff Stephens produced the album.

Donovan's second album found the Scottish folkie in possession of his own voice, a style of earnest, occasionally mystical musings indebted neither to Woody Guthrie nor Bob Dylan. True, Fairytale's highlights - "Sunny Goodge Street," "Jersey Thursday," and "The Summer Day Reflection Song" - use a sense of impressionism pioneered by Dylan, but Donovan flipped Dylan's weariness on its head. His persona is the wistful hippie poet, continually moving on down the road, but never bitter about the past.

Donovan is the fourteenth studio album, and sixteenth album overall, from British singer-songwriter Donovan. In 1976, Donovan's record contract with Epic Records came to an end with Slow Down World. The album had only achieved limited chart success, and his contract was not renewed
