The New Edge is the seventh album by Acoustic Alchemy, released on 16 March 1993. The album is critically regarded as one of Acoustic Alchemy's better albums, despite only having one track, "Cool as a Rule", on their standard set-list.

There are two different versions of the album. The New Edge was released with an extra track on the European release. The eleventh track, "Act of Innocence", was written in three time. This extends the total length of the disc to 47 minutes.
