Acadie is the debut album by record producer and singer-songwriter Daniel Lanois. It was largely written and recorded in the city of New Orleans. Lanois sings on it in both French and English, sometimes even on the same track.

The album was originally released in 1989 (see 1989 in music) on Opal/Warner Bros. Records. It was reissued in 2005 (see 2005 in music) on Daniellanois.com, with new cover art (but otherwise identical to the original).

Acadie was named the 20th greatest Canadian album of all time in Bob Mersereau's 2007 book The Top 100 Canadian Albums.
