Another Passenger is singer-songwriter Carly Simon's seventh album, and sixth studio album, released in 1976.

For this album, Simon enlisted a new producer, Ted Templeman, as well as his clients, The Doobie Brothers, to provide backing vocals.


Another Passenger was a top 30 album, but the first single "It Keeps You Runnin'" peaked outside the top 40, and the second single "Half A Chance" was even less successful (appearing only on the Adult Contemporary charts). Yet the album was, and remains, one of Simon's best reviewed works. Ken Tucker, writing in Rolling Stone, called it "Carly Simon's best record",[2] and the album has also gone on to become a favorite among many of Simon's fans.[3]

On May 8, 1976, four weeks before the album was released, Simon made her first and (to date) only appearance on Saturday Night Live, performing "Half A Chance" and "You're So Vain".

"In Times When My Head" was included on Simon's 2002 career spanning collection Anthology.[4]
