Honeychild is the third solo studio album by New Zealand singer Jenny Morris, released in October 1991 (see 1991 in music) by East West Records. The album went for the same style as Morris's other two albums' acoustic pop, with a hint of dance music, and was produced by Nick Launay, with some songs co-produced by Mark Forrester. The album included a cover version of the song "Tempted" by the English band Squeeze.

Honeychild was Morris's second most successful album, after Shiver, peaking at #5 in Australia,[1] and being accredited platinum by ARIA.[1] Morris also received a nomination in the "Best Female Artist" category at the 1992 ARIA Music Awards.

"Break in the Weather", the first single released from the album in September 1991, became Morris's highest-charting single in Australia, peaking at #2.[1] It also peaked at #5 in New Zealand.[2] "I've Had You", released in November 1991, fared less well on the charts, peaking at #39 in both Australia[1] and New Zealand.[2] "Zero", the third single from the album, peaked at #33 in New Zealand,[2] and number #89 in Australia.[1] The final single released from the album, "Crackerjack Man", failed to chart.
