A Single Man é o décimo segundo álbum de estúdio do cantor e compositor britânico Elton John, lançado em 1978. o primeiro álbum criado sem o seu antigo colaborador Bernie Taupin. Como Gary Osborne era um desconhecido na época, muitas pessoas interpretaram mal o título do álbum afirmando que Elton escreveu o álbum inteiro sozinho. O hit "Song for Guy" foi um tributo a Guy Burchett, um jovem funcionário da gravadora Rocket Records que foi morto em um acidente de motocicleta

A Single Man was John's first album ever to be officially released in the former USSR, though his previous releases had been smuggled into the country in various forms. It was released following the success of his A Single Man in Concert shows in Moscow and Leningrad, though it differed in two ways from its release elsewhere. Firstly, the album was re-titled Poyot Elton John. Secondly, on some prints, both "Big Dipper" and "Part-Time Love" were removed, due to the subject matter of the songs.
