I'll Take Care of You is the fourth solo album by former Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan. This album consists of cover songs.

It features Lanegan's interpretation of songs from a wide variety of songwriters, including Tim Rose, Tim Hardin, Booker T. Jones, and Buck Owens.

I'll Take Care Of You also includes the traditional song "Little Sadie."

A review from NME said: "it's probably his finest, most tenderly-delivered work to date."[4]

Pitchfork Medias Neil Lieberman said this about the album: "in this collection, Lanegan's managed to tug on the timeless threads that hold the patchwork of American music together. And that's certainly something to consider."[5]

The title song was featured in an episode of Veronica Mars's third season entitled "There's Got To Be A Morning After Pill".
