1990 is the eleventh album by American singer-songwriter Daniel Johnston. It was released in January 1990, through record label Shimmy Disc.
It was originally intended that all tracks would be first studio recordings. However, Johnston's ongoing problems with mental illness prevented him completing an album's worth of sessions. As a result, the album is compiled from studio recordings, home recordings and live performances. Johnston alludes to this in the film The Angel and Daniel Johnston – Live at the Union Chapel when he mentions that the album had originally intended to be called 1989, but they had not been able to release it that year.
