Walk the Tightrope is the fourth studio album by Australian boy band and pop vocal group Human Nature released on 26 April 2004. After a three-year absence since their greatest hits album, Here & Now: The Best of Human Nature, the group returned with a more adult-contemporary sound, presaging their future move to nostalgia type covers.

Making of the album[edit]

The first single "When You Say You Love Me" was written by Darren Hayes, formerly of Savage Garden, and reached the top 10 in Australia in April 2004 (the song was also covered by Clay Aiken). The music video was shot at a petrol station in Granville, New South Wales, in the dead of night.

The album also features a cover version of "To Be with You", a 1992 hit by glam metal band Mr. Big.

Andrew Tierney of the band says on the group's official website that performing an unrecorded Bee Gees song given to the band by Barry Gibb was a particular thrill. "The Bee Gees were, without a doubt, the major inspiration for this record. We looked at them, and above their image and what they wore, the thing that kept them current was the fact they consistently came up with incredible songs. Great songs sustain a career. So with this record, we just wanted great songs."[This quote needs a citation]
