How to get a Previously purchased app  from the App Store from a different account on the same computer?

Recently had to replace my hard drive and some info has gone missing.  An App from the App Store for one.  How can I get it back now that I have a new account?  It wont let me sign on with the old one anymore.

There's no need to create a new Apple ID just because the hard drive was replaced.
Apps can only be re downloaded using the same Apple ID they were purchased with originally.
You will have to re purchase the app using the new Apple ID.
