Devil's Got a New Disguise - The Very Best of Aerosmith is a compilation album by American hard rock band Aerosmith released on October 17, 2006. It has sold more than 265,048 copies to date in the U.S as of May 2008.

The album is intended to fulfill Aerosmith's contract with Sony Music/Columbia Records and to tide their fans over until the band releases their 15th studio album, scheduled for release in 2010.

Aerosmith had hoped to spend much of 2006 recording material for a new album, but the band had been hit with a number of setbacks during the year, including lead singer Steven Tyler requiring throat surgery in March 2006, bassist Tom Hamilton recovering from treatment for throat cancer, and conflict with their record company.

Thus, as the band had been robbed of adequate time to create a quality album, they opted to release a best-of compilation instead.

The album features 18 Aerosmith hits in their single-remix versions, spanning their entire career, as well as two new songs: the title track, "Devil's Got a New Disguise", and "Sedona Sunrise." "Devil's Got a New Disguise" was culled from outtakes from the Pump sessions, during which it was called "Susie Q" and had unfinished lyrics; later, during 1992's "Get a Grip" sessions, its title changed to "Devil's Got a New Disguise", it was co-written by Diane Warren (I Don't Want To Miss a Thing) and for the 2006 version few lines of the lyrics were changed. "Sedona Sunrise" was also culled from the Pump sessions co-written by Jim Vallance (The Other Side, Young Lust, etc). "Devil's Got A New Disguise" is a straightforward rocker, while "Sedona Sunrise" is a very laidback, somewhat romantic blues-rock tune.

The European edition of the album was released on 30 October 2006 and it features 5 tracks different from the American version. These tracks are: "Amazing", "Angel", "Falling In Love (Is Hard On The Knees)", "Pink", and "The Other Side". The tracks that were on the American edition of the album but are not on the European edition of the album are: "Back in the Saddle", "Last Child", "Mama Kin", "Rag Doll" and "What It Takes".
