White Music is the debut studio album by the English band XTC. It was released on 20 January 1978 and reached No. 38 in the UK album charts. It spawned the singles "Statue of Liberty" (released 6 January 1978) which was banned by the BBC for the line "sail beneath your skirt" and a re-recording of "This Is Pop?" (released 21 April 1978).

A German import, ca. 1991, includes these same tracks but in a different order: the first eleven tracks as the original release (Radios in Motion as track 1, Science Friction as track 7, through Heatwave as track 11), followed by the bonus tracks Traffic Light Rock through Neon Shuffle as tracks 12-19 respectively. Another release (CAR 50691) uses slightly different song titles: "New Town Animal In A Furnished Cage", "Into the Atomic Age", "Hang onto the Night", "Science Fiction"; in some countries, the same differences in titles are applied to the CDVX2095 edition.
