"To Love Again" is a 1981 studio/compilation album by Diana Ross. It featured both new recordings and previously-released material. The album was produced by Michael Masser. It reached #32 in the USA (#16 R&B) and sold around 200,000 copies.[1]


Following the success of 1980's Diana, produced by Chic, this set was released in early 1981 and consisted of old and newly recorded love songs by Ross. "It's My Turn" was the main theme from a 1980 movie starring Michael Douglas and Jill Clayburgh and had been released both on the soundtrack album and as a single prior to the To Love Again compilation. Two of the three new recordings, "One More Chance" and "Cryin' My Heart Out for You", were also issued as singles. To Love Again was to be Ross' last album of new material for Motown (before her return in 1989) after signing a $20 million contract with RCA.

In 2003 Motown/Universal Music re-released the album doubling the number of tracks to twenty. Two of the tracks, "We're Always Saying Goodbye" and "Share Some Love", had been previously unreleased. It also marked the first time many of the songs appeared on compact disc.
