"Surrender" is a song by the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO), and was released as a bonus track on the 2006 remastered version of their 1976 studio album A New World Record.

The track was originally written in 1976 for a cancelled film soundtrack.[1] In 2006 Jeff Lynne finished the song and included it on the remastered version of the album A New World Record. The song became the band's first new single release in twenty years and the first download from the band available online. Eventually charting at number 81 in the UK Singles Chart, "Surrender" was the band's first song to chart since "Getting to the Point".
