Newborn is the 8th studio album by James Gang, released in 1975, and the only released on Atlantic Records.

Guitarist Tommy Bolin and singer Roy Kenner left the band, and were replaced by guitarist Richard Shack and vocalist Bubba Keith. This album is notable for being perhaps the most boogie-based James Gang release and for featuring a cover of the Elvis Presley classic "Heartbreak Hotel".

Both Newborn and its follow-up Jesse Come Home have been reissued on one CD by Wounded Bird Records.

The album cover artwork features a reproduction of Salvador DalĂ­'s "Geopoliticus Child Watching the Birth of the New Man"
