In the Garden is the debut studio album by British new wave duo Eurythmics, released in 1981.

It was co-produced with 'krautrock' producer Conny Plank, at his studio in Cologne, with numerous guest musicians. Plank had previously worked with the duo whilst they were in their previous band The Tourists.

Two singles were released from the album in the UK, "Never Gonna Cry Again" and "Belinda". Neither the album nor the singles achieved much commercial success, although "Never Gonna Cry Again" charted at #63 in the singles chart.

On 14 November 2005, RCA repackaged and released Eurythmics' back catalog as "2005 Deluxe Edition Reissues". The re-issue of In the Garden added the B-sides from the album's two singles, plus three tracks recorded live on the accompanying tour.
