Goodbye to the Island is the fourth studio album by Welsh singer Bonnie Tyler. It became her final work with RCA Records after it was released in January 1981. Ronnie Scott and Steve Wolfe wrote the majority of songs for the album, and co-produced the record with Hugh Murphy.
Music critics described the album as "more upbeat" than her previous album Diamond Cut (1979). Goodbye to the Island had the weakest sales of all albums Tyler released through RCA, only charting in Norway at number 38.
The album's lead single, "I Believe in Your Sweet Love" was released in November 1979. It reached number 27 on the Canadian RPM Adult Contemporary chart in February 1980.
Tyler won the World Popular Song Festival with "Sitting on the Edge of the Ocean" when she represented the United Kingdom. It was then released as a single in November 1979.
The final two singles, "I'm Just a Woman" and "Goodbye to the Island", failed to chart worldwide.Bonnie Tyler - vocals
