Different World is the 18th album by British rock group Uriah Heep. It was the second studio album to feature this line-up.

Bass guitarist Trevor Bolder produced the album and has said that, although it was an experience, he found it tricky wearing the hats of both band member/musician and producer.

The UK vinyl and cassette releases had the lyrics on the inner sleeve: the CD had nothing at all printed inside the insert, although whether this was by accident or design is unclear. Subsequent CD reissues printed the lyrics and had bonus tracks.

The UK tour was Heep's first in support of new studio product since 1985. (They had played just the one UK show for Raging Silence.)

Different World was the first Uriah Heep studio album from which no single was released in the UK.

The track "Which Way Will the Wind Blow" is not to be confused with "Which Way Did the Wind Blow", a track performed by Shaw and Lanzon in their previous band Grand Prix in 1980.
