"Freedom" is a song by British synthpop duo Erasure. It was the first single released from Erasure's ninth studio album Loveboat. The track was written by Vince Clarke and Andy Bell. "Freedom" (as well as the entire Loveboat album) was produced by Flood, and this is the first Flood-produced Erasure single since "The Circus" in 1987.

Mute Records released "Freedom" in the United Kingdom and the single was never released in the United States due to problems with Erasure's then-record company Maverick (the Loveboat album would not see a US release until 2003). The song peaked at number 27 on the UK singles chart and at number eighty in Germany. In Sweden it charted for one week peaking at number 51. It also charted for a week in Germany, appearing at number 80.
