Description

Broadcast date: 1980-12-27

Clues is the sixth solo album by Robert Palmer, released in 1980. It has a rockier, new wave edge compared to his previous releases. The album peaked at number 59 on the Billboard Top Pop Albums chart and No. 31 in the UK in 1980. The album also peaked at No. 1 in Sweden, No. 3 in France, No. 15 in the Netherlands and No. 42 in Italy. Donald Guarisco of Allmusic described Clues as "one of Robert Palmer's strongest and most consistent albums", despite being somewhat short at 31 minutes.

Palmer, who played percussion on Talking Heads' Remain in Light, had the favour returned when the band's drummer Chris Frantz played drums on Clues. Andy Fraser, the former bassist of Free and the author of Palmer's first break through single "Every Kinda People", played bass on the album on two songs. New Wave icon Gary Numan co-wrote a song with Palmer (another co-writer appeared on Maybe It's Live) and played keyboards on a remake of his own song "I Dream of Wires". This was first issued on CD in 1985 when Island's catalogue was issued under WEA manufacturing. The WEA pressings are sought after collector's items.

The video to the first track on the album, "Looking for Clues", aired on MTV's first day of broadcasting, on 1 August 1981.
