Brujo is an album by the American country rock band New Riders of the Purple Sage. It is their fifth studio album, and their sixth album overall. It was recorded in 1974 and released that same year by Columbia Records.

Brujo was the first New Riders album to feature Skip Battin. Battin had replaced Dave Torbert as the New Riders' bass player after Torbert left to join Kingfish.

One single was released in conjunction with the album — "You Angel You" / "Parson Brown".

In 2004, a combined CD of Brujo and the New Riders' previous album, Home, Home on the Road, was released by BGO Records.
