Join the Band is a 2008 album recorded by Little Feat. Their first studio album in five years, it features no new original songs but is a set of collaborations with other artists such as Bob Seger. Emmylou Harris, Dave Matthews and Inara George. It was released on July 1, 2008.

The album was recorded at Jimmy Buffett's studio and co-produced by Feat keyboard player Bill Payne with Mac McAnally of Buffett's Coral Reefer Band. "Something in the Water" was originally recorded by co-writer Jeffrey Steele.

It also turned out to be the band's last work with singer Shaun Murphy, with whom they parted company in 2009, and with drummer Richie Hayward who died from cancer in 2010.
