|Nick Lowe chronology|
Party of One is an album by English singer-songwriter Nick Lowe. Produced by Dave Edmunds, it was released in 1990 by Reprise Records and reissued with altered cover art and two bonus tracks in 1995 by Upstart Records.
Party of One is one of only two Nick Lowe solo albums with no cover songs, as it is made up entirely of songs written or co-written by Lowe (the other album is 1982's Nick the Knife). One of the songs on Party of One, "All Men Are Liars," features a playful jab at Rick Astley and quotes from his 1987 song "Never Gonna Give You Up."
