"I'm Stepping Out" is the last single from the final John Lennon and Yoko Ono album Milk and Honey. In it, Lennon celebrates his enthusiasm for the night life of New York City, and makes tongue-in-cheek reference to his "househusband" period. It reached No. 88 in the UK Singles chart, and in the US at No. 55 in the US Billboard Hot 100[1] and number 57 on the Cashbox Top 100.[2]

The B-side features Ono's "Sleepless Night."


"I'm Stepping Out" was the first song to be recorded when the sessions for Double Fantasy/Milk and Honey began at The Hit Factory in New York City on 7 August 1980.[3]
