Alison Moyet's 1987 second solo album, No. 2 in the U.K.!

180-gram LP, remastered from the original tapes

Includes the hits "Is This Love?" and "Weak In The Presence Of Beauty"

For some of these songs, Moyet teamed up with guitarist Rick Driscoll and keyboardist Jess Bailey. "Is This Love?" was co-written with David A. Stewart of Eurythmics while Moyet was living in Los Angeles. As a friend of Iovine's, Stewart had called into the studio to see Iovine, who suggested he and Moyet write a song together. To avoid problems with his publishers, Stewart's contribution was disguised under the pseudonym Jean Guiot.

"Sleep Like Breathing" was written by David Freeman and Joseph Hughes of The Lover Speaks. The duo contributed three songs to the Raindancing sessions, though only "Sleep Like Breathing" would be included on the album. "Weak in the Presence of Beauty" was written by Michael Ward and Rob Clarke, and originally recorded by their band Floy Joy in 1986. Moyet chose to record her own version of the song for the album, however would later reveal that she only recorded it because she knew it would be a hit.

Raindancing was released in April 1987. Continuing her success in the U.K., the album reached No. 2 and remained on the chart for 53 weeks.
