Free is Rick Astley's third album, released in 1991. It was his first album not to be produced by the noted production team of Stock Aitken Waterman. It gave Astley another hit single in the form of the ballad "Cry for Help", which became a Top 10 in both the UK and the US. Further singles "Move Right Out" and "Never Knew Love" were less successful. Free reached the UK Top 10 and the US Top 40 and would mark the end of successful four year period for the singer.
