Night Out is the 1979 debut studio album by Ellen Foley, a long-time backup vocalist for Meat Loaf. Seven of the nine tracks were cover versions of Foley's favorite songs, while two were co-written by Foley. One of which was "We Belong to the Night", which, as a single, hit #1 in the Netherlands and managed to reach #31 on the Australian charts around Christmas 1979. The musicians were mostly from Ian Hunter's touring band which promoted his 1979 album You're Never Alone with a Schizophrenic with the addition of the Australian musician Kerryn Tolhurst on slide guitar.
