"En un mundo nuevo" (Spanish pronunciation: [en um ˈmundo ˈnweβo], "In a New World") was the Spanish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1971, performed in Spanish by Karina.

The song is an up-tempo number in which Karina sings about the importance of keeping one's faith and hope for a new and better world, a world in which love and truth will prevail. Karina recorded the song in five languages, Spanish, English (as "Tomorrow I'm Coming Your Way"), French ("Un monde plus grand et plus beau"), German ("Wir glauben an morgen") and Italian ("Un mondo nuovo").

The song was performed sixth on the night, following Germany's Katja Ebstein with "Diese Welt" and preceding France's Serge Lama with "Un jardin sur la terre". At the close of voting, it had received 116 points, placing 2nd in a field of 18.

It was succeeded as Spanish representative at the 1972 Contest by Jaime Morey with "Amanece".
