Chicago XXX is an album by the American band Chicago, released on March 21, 2006. Their thirtieth official album, it is Chicago's first studio release of new and original material since 1991's Twenty 1.

The album was recorded in Nashville, Tennessee with horn sessions in Los Angeles, California over the summer of 2005. Production duties were handled by Jay DeMarcus of the country group Rascal Flatts, who came to the project through a friendship with Chicago's bassist-singer Jason Scheff. DeMarcus used several session players for the album.

Chicago XXX peaked at #41 in the US during a brief chart stay, spawning minor adult contemporary hits "Feel" and "Love Will Come Back." It ranks among their poorest sellers, alongside "13," "XIV," and "Twenty 1."
