Sometimes Late at Night is the third and last solo album by songwriter Carole Bayer Sager, released in 1981. Singles from the album were Stronger Than Before (later recorded by Dionne Warwick and Chaka Khan), and Easy To Love Again.

The producer and composer was Burt Bacharach. After this album, they married and wrote many songs including "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)" and "That's What Friends Are For", until their divorce.

The US CD release suffered from bad packaging, incorrect information and skips in the CD track; but the Japanese-remastered CD (now re-released with paper jacket) was perfect, and included the correct and original lyrics.
