No Man's Woman is a tribute album to female musicians that consists of Australian male musicians performing various cover versions to recognise the contributions that female musicians have made to the international music industry. The compilation album was released in Australia on 20 October 2007,[1] and was first introduced to radio on 17 September of the same year.[2]

History[edit]

The album was developed out of a desire by fans to hear Australian rock group You Am I perform a cover of a Patti Smith song. While the group did not contribute to the compilation, the aforementioned wish from music fans was the basis for the formulation of the album that was eventually released on Australia's Dew Process record label.[2] The compilation was composed of two discs, with the second disc featuring a selection of the songs in their original forms, performed by the original artists.
