One Night of Sin is the twelfth studio album by English singer Joe Cocker, released by Capitol Records in June 1989. It contains the hit single "When The Night Comes" (US #11), which was Cocker's last US Top 40 hit. The song is also notable because it was written by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance. In addition, the former plays rhythm guitar on the song. Other notable songs on the album include a cover of "One Night" (here as "One Night of Sin"), a #1 hit by Elvis Presley from 1958, and "I'm Your Man" by Leonard Cohen. The album also features "Another Mind Gone", which was the first song in sixteen years co-written by Cocker himself. The song was dedicated to B. J. Wilson, Cocker's former bandmate and a friend.
