Adam Ant – Strip

Strip is the second solo album by Adam Ant, released in 1983. It marked a decline in Ant’s success, as it only reached #65 in the US and #20 in the UK.

Strip was released onto the UK charts on the 19th November 1983 by CBS Records (of which Epic is a division) (CBS 25705) It reached number 20 in the album charts, it was in the charts for 8 weeks.

The lead single from the album was “Puss ‘n Boots”, which continued the pantomime themes and fashions of Ant’s earlier work.

Phil Collins plays drums on “Puss ‘n Boots” and “Strip”. Singer Anni-Frid Lyngstad, of ABBA fame, also performs the female spoken part on “Strip”. The album was re-released in a remastered edition in 2005 with eight bonus tracks.
