Lon Gisland is an EP by Beirut, released by Ba Da Bing Records in January 2007. It is a follow-up to the critically acclaimed Gulag Orkestar and the first album performed by the full band, which came together after the release of Gulag Orkestar. The album includes a reworked version of "Scenic World", a re-recording of the song that appears on Beirut's previous album.

Pitchfork Media's Brandon Stosuy gave Lon Gisland a positive review, calling Condon's decision to play with a full band a "smart move." Stosuy ended his review by writing "It seems Condon's getting all this-- by embracing the developments, he's started to go beyond chewing the scenery to, well, actually living in it."
All tracks written by Zach Condon.

- The album's version of "Scenic World" differs from the first in that it has a slower, stronger sound and is entirely acoustic, with a violin and accordion replacing the original MIDI keyboard.
