A Woman and a Man is the sixth studio album by American singer Belinda Carlisle, released in the United Kingdom on September 23, 1996 by Chrysalis Records. It was the first album Carlisle had released since departing Virgin Records. The album is full of songs that show how Carlisles style had matured compared to her earlier releases, written by Rick Nowels, Maria Vidal, Ellen Shipley, Charlotte Caffey, Neil Finn and Roxette cofounder Per Gessle who also produced one of the tracks.
Allmusic reviewed the album as mature collection of adult pop, with cool keyboards and subtle arrangements that often make the record sound like background music and that Carlisle has rarely been in better voice
It made its debut on the UK Albums Chart on September 30, 1996 at number twelve. It became a successful album, in Uk it outselling her previous album, Real, and reviving her career in the singles chart producing two top tens and a top twenty. It spent a short time in the top seventy-five falling out of it after just five weeks and was in the top two hundred for thirteen weeks accrediting gold by BPI.
The singles had a fair share of success in most music markets. “In Too Deep” was the first song released from the album and became a top ten hit in the UK and a top twenty in Australia. “Always Breaking My Heart” was the second song released from the album, written and produced by Per Gessle of Roxette. It too was a top ten hit in the UK and Carlisles second hit from this album. “Love in the Key of C” the third song released, became Carlisle’s tenth top twenty hit. “California” managed to chart in the top forty in the UK.
