New England is the seventh studio album by rock band Wishbone Ash. It was a success compared to the band's Locked In album, but still did not chart as high as most of previous Wishbone Ash albums. This album would mark the "Americanization" of Wishbone Ash, as the band would relocate from England to the Northeastern United States for tax purposes.

New England contained an even balance of hard rock songs and breezy, soft rock ballads, the latter of which would see further exploration from Wishbone Ash on their next album.
