Richard Russell (born 18 March 1971) is owner of British record label XL Recordings.


Russell joined the independent record label XL Recordings in 1991. The label was founded in 1989 by Tim Palmer and Nick Halkes (in partnership with Beggars Banquet Records) to release rave and electronic music on 12" vinyl singles.

XL's first success was The Prodigy in the early 1990s.

In 2005, Russell appeared at the 'In The City' conference in Manchester alongside other British independent record label founders Chris Blackwell, Tony Wilson, and Alan McGee on a panel entitled "I Wasn't Born To Follow".

In 2006, he co-produced the avant-garde orchestral album Aluminium by Aluminium, based around songs written by Jack White of The White Stripes.

Thom Yorke, of Radiohead fame, released his first solo record, The Eraser, on the label in July 2006. While not reaching Number One in any specific country (#2 in the US, #3 in the UK and #2 in Canada), it was Number One for worldwide sales during its initial week of release.
