Lunapark was the debut album by indie rock band Luna. It was released in 1992 on Elektra Records. As the first musical outing of Dean Wareham since the disbanding of Galaxie 500, Lunapark set forth the new musical directions of Wareham and embraced a musical sound that would continue to evolve throughout Luna's tenure. Originally recorded as a three-piece, Luna did not add guitarist Sean Eden to the lineup until 1993's Slide EP.
