All Saints is the name of two different compilation albums of instrumental works by English musician David Bowie, the first released privately in 1993, and the second released commercially in 2001 by Virgin/EMI. However, neither version of All Saints is a complete collection of such instrumentals.

The first All Saints compilation was a two-disc set made as a Christmas gift for Bowie's friends and family in 1993, only 150 copies of which were made.[3] Due to its rarity, the album became a highly desirable collector's item over the years.[4]

In 2001, a second album, titled All Saints: Collected Instrumentals 1977–1999, was released by Bowie. For this release, all tracks originating from the Black Tie White Noise (1993) album ("Pallas Athena", "The Wedding", "Looking for Lester"), as well as "South Horizon" from The Buddha of Suburbia (1993), were dropped, with "Brilliant Adventure" from Hours (1999) and the non-album single "Crystal Japan" (1980) appearing in their place.
