This article is about the 2011 music single. For the idiom, see wiktionary: quelle surprise.

"Quelle Surprise" is a single by British rock band Enter Shikari, released on 19 May 2011. It was originally planned to be the first single released from the band's third studio album A Flash Flood of Colour. However, Rou Reynolds has since confirmed that it won't feature, and instead will be a stand-alone single much like the previous single "Destabilise".[1] The song was first played live at the SXSW Festival on 18 March 2011 in Houston, Texas. The track's debut airing was on 19 May 2011 Zane Lowe's BBC Radio 1 show, he chose the track for the "Hottest Record In the World" spot.[2]

The single was released on iTunes shortly after being played on Zane's show. The single comes with 3 b-sides, 2 of them being remixes of "Destabilise", one by Reynolds' side project ROUT and the other by London artists Creatures of Love. The other b-side being a live recording of "Hectic" from the Enter Shikari Christmas party featuring Matty P. It was announced that on 11 July 2011 that this EP would be released as a limited edition 2 7" vinyl set (one will be red, the other will be white).

The song was eventually included on A Flash Flood of Colour as a bonus track on the iTunes version of the album in the UK and Ireland. The same edition of the album also included the previous stand alone single "Destabilise" as a bonus track, as well.
