Glass Houses is the seventh studio album by American singer-songwriter Billy Joel, released on March 12, 1980. It features Joel’s first song to peak at No. 1 on Billboard’s Pop Singles chart, “It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me”. The album itself topped the Pop Albums chart for six weeks and was ranked No. 4 on Billboard’s 1980 year-end album chart. The album is the 41st best selling album of the 1980s, with sales of 7.1 million copies in the U.S. alone. In 1981, Joel won a Grammy Award for “Best Male Rock Vocal Performance” for his work on Glass Houses.

The album marked a departure from the more mellow sound of Joel’s previous albums, such as The Stranger and 52nd Street. Glass Houses has a harder rock sound, influenced by new wave and hard rock bands of the time. The album’s title track, “Glass Houses”, is a criticism of the music industry and the media, while “It’s Still Rock and Roll to Me” is a defiant defense of traditional rock and roll. Other notable tracks on the album include “You May Be Right”, “Sometimes a Fantasy”, and “Don’t Ask Me Why”.
