Back to Life is the ninth studio album by German singer Sandra, released in 2009.

The album was recorded in New York and while working on it, Sandra was collaborating with Thomas Anders (famous for his work with Modern Talking) and Toby Gad (famous for his work with Beyoncé Knowles, Fergie, Shakira and others). The album contains 15 songs, most of which were written by Toby Gad. The Internet version of this release contains two bonus tracks for digital download.

Back to Life has spawned two singles, "In a Heartbeat" and "The Night Is Still Young", a duet with Thomas Anders, along with a video clip for the song.

The album was produced by Jens Gad (older brother of Toby Gad), who also co-produced her two previous studio albums, The Wheel of Time and The Art of Love, and also re-mastered a selection of her million-selling singles (of which 12 million have sold worldwide) for her album Reflections, including "(I'll Never Be) Maria Magdalena" and four new remixes of her 1980s' smash hit "In the Heat of the Night".
