On a Day Like Today is the eighth studio album by Canadian singer-songwriter Bryan Adams, released in 1998. Bryan recruited producer Bob Rock for this album. Bryan wanted to produce a hit album after critics panned his last studio album.
On a Day Like Today was a success around the world, however at the time in the U.S. market, it became the first of Adams' albums since 1983's Cuts Like a Knife not to obtain a platinum sales certification. According to AllMusic, the record company didn't do a lot of advertising for album, as Adams and this album got caught when his record company sold his recording contract to rap label Interscope, who in turn did very little in the USA to promote it.
"On a Day Like Today" was the first single released. It reached #13 in the UK and #1 on the Canadian Singles Chart. "When You're Gone", the second single, was a smash hit reaching #3 on the UK Chart and was in the Top 10 for ten weeks. It reached #11 in Canada. "Cloud Number Nine" reached #6 in the UK and #7 in Canada.
