Two Horizons is the fifth solo album by Irish singer Moya Brennan. It is her first full-length release under the name Moya Brennan, as opposed to Máire Brennan. The album was predominantly recorded in her home studio in Dublin and was nominated for a Grammy award. The album was recorded between 2002–2003 and first became available on 23 October 2003. It is also Brennan's first non-Christian album since her 1993 recording Misty Eyed Adventures. It is the most successful of her solo albums to date and the second to be Grammy-nominated.

The album marks a change of direction in production, arrangement and style for Brennan in terms of her solo career, featuring no other vocalists but herself. The album features Irish fiddle player Máire Breatnach among others. The album also features much of Brennan's current live band.

Recordings were made in various studios in London, England and Dublin, Ireland during 2003:
