Röd (Swedish for "Red") is the eighth studio album by Swedish alternative rock band Kent. It was released as digital download exclusively through the band's website on November 5, 2009, and physically on November 6, 2009. The first single from the album, "Töntarna", was released as digital download on October 5, 2009.

Lead singer Joakim Berg announced on Kent's forum on April 21, 2009, that the band had started writing songs for the album in 2008 until the beginning of April 2009 and subsequently the band had begun the recording of the album. The album is produced by Kent and Joshua, who also produced the band's previous studio album.[6][7]

Röd is available in a standard edition and a deluxe edition box. The deluxe edition box version features the 11-track CD, a USB flash drive with high quality MP3 files as well as AIFF files, three 10" records which between them contain the whole album, and a 118 page book containing lyrics, abstract pictures and photographs.[8][9] Due to distribution issues the deluxe edition was delayed until November 11, 2009.[10]
