Knnillssonn is the fourteenth album by Harry Nilsson, released in July, 1977. Knnillssonn was his final album for RCA Records and Nilsson's personal favorite while recording it, as his voice had recovered from the damage done during the Pussy Cats sessions; his songs were more developed and his singing was in top form. RCA Records agreed and had prepared to promote the record heavily as a comeback album after his previous efforts were released with little notice and promotion and were mostly missed by the public. Shortly after the album was released, Elvis Presley died suddenly, at age 42. Presley and Nilsson both recorded for RCA Records; The unexpected death of Elvis resulted in a complete overhaul of RCA's promotion plans. Money and resources allotted to Knnillssonn and other new RCA releases was all redirected to promoting Presley's recently issued final album Moody Blue, as well as developing future Presley releases, reissues and the promotion of Presley's back catalog.

Klaus Voorman, billed on the album as Mara Gibb, was the guest mystery singer on "Perfect Day." The St. Paul's Cathedral Choir Boys choir is also on this track in addition to "All I Think About Is You."
