No Parlez is the debut solo studio album by English singer Paul Young.
Released in 1983, it reached number one on the UK Albums Chart (for a non-consecutive total of 5 weeks) and remained in the UK Top 100 for 119 weeks.
The album has been certified triple platinum by the BPI for UK sales in excess of 900,000 copies.
Initially, the first two singles, ˝Iron Out the Rough Spots˝ and a remake of ˝Love of the Common People˝, had no success, but the third, a cover of the Marvin Gaye classic ˝Wherever I Lay My Hat (That’s My Home)˝, was No. 1 in the UK Singles Chart for three weeks in the summer of 1983, and the first of Young’s 14 British Top 40 singles.
Similar success followed in continental Europe.
In the UK, the follow-up single ˝Come Back and Stay˝ reached No. 4, and the re-release of ˝Love of the Common People˝ made it to No. 2 in late 1983.
The album was released with a different cover in North America, and a new video for the single ˝Come Back and Stay˝ was made.
In 2008, a promotional CD of the album was distributed by the Daily Mail newspaper.
