Where Are You? is the thirteenth studio album by Frank Sinatra.

This is the first album Sinatra recorded at Capitol without Nelson Riddle, as well as the first he recorded in stereo. In 1970 it was re-issued as a ten track album under the name The Night We Called It a Day.

Early pressings of the original stereo album had only 11 tracks while the mono version had all 12 tracks. The stereo edition may have been missing "I Cover The Waterfront" because it was only recorded in mono.[2] Later stereo pressings in some international markets and in boxed sets restored "Waterfront," beginning circa 1975 (in Holland).[3]
