Made in America is the tenth studio album by American music duo Carpenters, and final album by the duo to be released during Karen Carpenter's lifetime. Released in June 1981, the album reached number 52 in the US and number 12 in the UK.

In 1985, Richard said "that was Karen's favorite album and is mine, out of all our projects".[4]

Karen played drums in the studio for the first time since Horizon on the song "When it's Gone (It's Just Gone)", albeit in unison with veteran Nashville session drummer Larrie Londin, and she also played percussion on "Those Good Old Dreams" in tandem with Paulinho da Costa.
