Song of the New World is a 1973 album by jazz pianist McCoy Tyner, his fourth to be released on the Milestone label. It was recorded in April 1973 and features performances by Tyner with a big band including Sonny Fortune, Hubert Laws, Alphonse Mouzon and Virgil Jones and a string section on two tracks.


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states "The powerful pianist is in fine form and the main soloist throughout. Most memorable is the title cut and a reworking of "Afro Blue"".[4]
