How Do You Say I Don't Love You Anymore was Freda Payne's second American album (following a release in Sweden with Don Gardner) released May 28, 1966. although regarded primarily as a jazz album, there are also several covers of pop songs featured, including the Beatles' hit "Yesterday," "Let It Be Me," the Righteous Brothers' "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'," "Feeling Good," and "If You Love Me (Really Love Me)."

When released, Billboard magazine gave the LP an all-star review, stating, Freda Payne incorporates the zest of the contemporary pop singer with the discipline of the old pro. She sings big beat and ballad with taste an understanding. Billboard concluded saying[citation needed]

On 'Let It Be Me,' the bluesy treatment takes over. 'Yesterday' is delivered in approved pop standard style. Miss Payne is a versatile and polished performer who understands a lyric.

The album was reissued on CD on March 31, 2009 by Poker Records. The reissue contains a biographical essay of Payne's life and career by Mick Patrick (written in December 2008).
