The New Paper is Singapore's second-highest circulating paid English-language newspaper, first launched on July 26, 1988, by Singapore Press Holdings (SPH). Its daily circulation is around 110,000.

The New Paper is a newspaper in tabloid form. It was originally published as a "noon paper", but since 2006 is published daily in the morning from 7 a.m. onwards. There is also a noon edition that hits the newsstands on Mondays and Thursdays that give more special coverage of late-night association football matches that occur after the morning edition goes to press.

It is the second most-read paid English daily in Singapore[1] , with an average daily readership of about half a million. It is often compared to the freesheet tabloid Today, although the latter positions itself against The Straits Times.

It targets readers with more eye-catching tabloid journalism featuring sensational and compelling headlines. It tends to focus on human-interest stories, with extensive sections on entertainment, fashion and sports. There is, in comparison with The Straits Times, very little coverage of international news.

The New Paper is particularly noted for its coverage of sports news, particularly of association football (e.g. the UEFA Champions League and the English Premier League).

FiRST (magazine) merged with the New Paper and went from being a monthly magazine to a weekly pull-out movie section, still titled "FiRST".
