Strip is the second solo album by Adam Ant, released in 1983. It marked a decline in Ant's success, as it only reached #65 in the US and #20 in the UK.
The lead single from the album was "Puss 'n Boots", which continued the pantomime themes and fashions of Ant's earlier work. The single reached #5 on the UK chart in 1983, becoming Ant's final UK top ten hit, although other top 20 hits would follow. The title track, "Strip" was released as a single in 1984 and reached #41 on the UK singles chart and #42 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
The cover photograph was fashioned after actress Jane Russell's famous photo from Howard Hughes's 1943 film The Outlaw.
An extensive tour of the US was undertaken after the release. In Adam Ant's 2006 autobiography, he mentions that the promoters and tour managers were incentivized with higher pay if the album hit the Top 40 in the US. It got to #65.
Some performances of the tour can be found on YouTube. It was the biggest American tour of Ant's career, with dates in many cities, and was famous for the showmanship involved; this included a vine-covered bridge suspended above the audience, and a Houdini-style immersion tank, which Ant would jump in and emerge from wearing only black shorts - after "stripping" his stage costume off during the course of the show.
