Brand New Morning is an album by American rock singer/songwriter Bob Seger, released in 1971 (see 1971 in music). The album is a stripped down, acoustic album, somewhat in the vein of Bruce Springsteen's decade-later Nebraska. This album has never been reissued on a legitimate U.S. CD release by Capitol. This album also marked Seger's four-year departure from Capitol. Seger's next album with Capitol would be "Beautiful Loser," released in April 1975.

Despite being a fan favorite due to the different atmosphere it has compared to other Seger records, Seger has said it will never be reissued again. Some critics speculate it's because Seger is singing solo and acoustic without a band, a more intimate style than his other releases. Due to the album only having been released in its original vinyl format, has made it extremely rare. However, the song "Railroad Days" is considered a fan favorite and has received some airplay later in Seger's career on classic rock radio despite there not being any singles released from the album. Seger once joked in an interview, saying his only copy of it is "buried in his backyard."
