Face Dances is the ninth studio album by English rock band The Who. It was released in 1981 on Warner Bros. Records in the United States (it was the band's first release on that label) and on Polydor Records in the United Kingdom. It was one of two Who studio albums with drummer Kenney Jones, who had replaced Keith Moon after his death three years earlier. The album peaked at #4 on the US Billboard album charts and #2 on the UK album charts.
The album cover features paintings of the members by many British painters, who were commissioned by Peter Blake, designer of the cover of The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album. Artists include Tom Phillips, Richard Hamilton, Allen Jones, David Hockney, Clive Barker, R. B. Kitaj, Howard Hodgkin, Patrick Caulfield, and Blake himself. "You Better You Bet" was the first single from the album; its music video was one of the first music videos aired on MTV in 1981.
"Face Dances had some of Pete Townshend's best, most incisive compositions since Quadrophenia." -Stephen Thomas Erlewine, allmusic.com
