Tonight is the sixteenth studio album by English singer-songwriter David Bowie, released on 24 September 1984 by EMI America Records. The follow-up to his most commercially successful album Let's Dance (1983), it was written and recorded in mid-1984 at Le Studio in Morin-Heights, Quebec, Canada following the conclusion of the Serious Moonlight Tour. Much of the album's sound is the same as its predecessor's, due to Bowie's effort to retain the new audience that he had recently acquired.

The album was produced by Bowie, Derek Bramble and Hugh Padgham. Much of Bowie's creative process was the exact same as Let's Dance. Like its predecessor, Bowie played no instruments on Tonight, instead offering little creative input to the musicians during the sessions. He also recorded multiple demos of the tracks beforehand, something collaborator Carlos Alomar recalled that he rarely did previously. Three songs, including the title track, were covers of Iggy Pop songs, who was present during most of the sessions and co-writer on multiple tracks. The title track features singer Tina Turner.
