The Buddha of Suburbia is the 19th studio album by David Bowie, originally released on 8 November 1993 through Arista Records.

The project originated following an interview between Bowie and novelist Hanif Kureishi during a press tour for Black Tie White Noise (1993), where Bowie agreed to compose music for an upcoming adaptation of Kureishi's 1990 novel The Buddha of Suburbia. After making basic tracks, Bowie decided to turn the project into a full album.

Although it still remains one of Bowie's least-known works, Bowie's biographers and other reviewers have praised The Buddha of Suburbia as a forgotten gem in his catalogue. Bowie himself named it his favourite album in 2003.
