We present a countably infinite number of new explicit co-homo-geneity one Sasaki-Einstein metrics on S^2\times S^3 of both quasi-regular and irregular type. These give rise to new solutions of type IIB supergravity which are expected to be dual to N=1 superconformal field theories in four dimensions with compact or non-compact R-symmetry and rational or irrational central charges, respectively.
