About this album

Nightclubbing is the fifth studio album by Grace Jones, released in 1981. It is the second of three post-disco albums that Jones made at Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas and became Jones’ commercial breakthrough and also formed the basis of her groundbreaking concept tour A One Man Show. It claimed the number one slot on NME Album of the Year.

The lead-off single for the album was “Demolition Man” written by Sting for Jones and also included on The Police’s album Ghost in the Machine later in the year. The second single “Pull Up to the Bumper” was a hit and became one of Jones’ best-known songs. It originally made #53 in the UK Singles Chart in June 1981, and a 1985 re-release following the success of the Island Life compilation backed with “La Vie En Rose” reached #12.

The third single from Nightclubbing in 1981 was “I’ve Seen That Face Before (Libertango)” which melded Ástor Piazzolla’s Argentine tango classic with a reggae beat, and lyrics partly sung in French. The title track is a cover of an Iggy Pop song, which was co-written by David Bowie and the fourth single release, “Walking in the Rain”, was originally recorded by Australian New Wave band Flash and the Pan and included on their eponymous 1979 debut album. Nightclubbing closes with the ballad “I’ve Done It Again” written by Barry Reynolds, with whom Jones would go on to compose most of the material for 1982’s Living My Life.
