Worlds in Collision is Pere Ubu's eighth studio album. The album continues in the glossy pop mold found on their previous studio album, Cloudland. For this album, Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart, Snakefinger, the Residents, the Pixies) takes over from departing original member Allen Ravenstine on synthesizer duties, though Ravenstine makes some guest appearances.

Though out of print for many years, a reissue was announced in early 2007.[3]
