Keeping Our Love Warm is the sixth studio album by the American duo Captain & Tennille. Issued in 1980, it was their final full-length release recorded for Casablanca Records.


Keeping Our Love Warm is the last major album from the duo.

Of the nine tracks, Toni Tennille wrote five of the songs, one of which, a re-recorded version of "Gentle Stranger" (as Tennille had originally envisioned it), was originally featured on their 1975 debut album Love Will Keep Us Together.

The duo performed the title track in the 1980 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
