Guessing a Wordle on the first try gives you bragging rights for an entire day, so we don't blame you for skipping to the answer. Your secret is safe with us. Here's today's Wordle solution:

The answer to today's Wordle is: ALBUM.

An album can mean two things: either a collection of pictures, such as a photo album for a specific event or memory, or a collection of songs released together by a particular musician. Whenever someone asks me about my favourite album, I tend to freeze and blurt out whatever I last listened to. If you're more of a music aficionado than me, maybe you've got a particular album that you love to share whenever you get the chance.

However, make sure that you don't share the answer for today's Wordle until others have had a chance to guess the solution. Wordle is incredibly popular, and no one likes having the solution spoiled before they find time to play.
