Calling the World is the second studio album by American alternative rock band Rooney. It was released on July 17, 2007.

The album is the result of almost three years of recording, with over 50 songs recorded during the sessions. "When Did Your Heart Go Missing?", was released as the lead single. The album was produced by John "Strawberry" Fields. Rooney unveiled tracks from the album at a series of Monday night concerts in Los Angeles during March. The cover is a recreation of the cover to the self-titled debut album of classic rock band The Doors and an homage to Rubber Soul by the classic rock band The Beatles. Alternative artwork was used on the album's European release.

Following its release, Calling the World debuted at number 42 on the U.S. Billboard 200, selling about 15,000 copies in its first week.[6] A second single "I Should've Been After You" was released later in the year, while a third single, "Are You Afraid" was released in some countries early in 2008.
