Touch is an album by The Supremes, released in the summer of 1971 on the Motown label. It includes the singles: "Nathan Jones" and "Touch", the first charting Supremes single to feature a lead vocal by founding member Mary Wilson. "Touch" was the first post-Diana Ross Supremes single (not counting the Four Tops duet "You Gotta Have Love in Your Heart") to miss the US top 40, peaking at #71.

The LP was the final Frank Wilson-produced Supremes' album. Wilson, who had been the group's main producer since the departure of Ross in early 1970, went on to work with Motown artist Eddie Kendricks.
