Ninja Tuna is the fourth studio album by the British musician and DJ Andrew "Mr. Scruff" Carthy, released on 6 October 2008 simultaneously by Ninja Tune and Ninja Tuna, a special subdivision of Ninja Tune created by Mr. Scruff in order for him to release his music.

The track "Kalimba", which is a pop rock song, with synthesizers, and contains influences of jazz, electronic, and dance pop, was selected by Microsoft as the sample music for Windows 7 to demonstrate the new Windows Media Player.

A compilation of outtakes of the album, entitled Bonus Bait, was released in the following year.

In 2009 it was awarded a silver certification from the Independent Music Companies Association which indicated sales of at least 30,000 copies throughout Europe.[3]
