Attitude & Virtue is the sixth album by Corey Hart, released in 1992 by Sire Records. It generated four charting singles. It was first released in Japan on 25 April, before being released in Canada on 28 April. [2] [3]



The opening song, "Back in the Hand", is about Hart's rise as a young artist and later decline in popularity. "The song is autobiographical, sort of a positive statement from me", he told the Vancouver Sun. Hart added, "It's a song that I sit back and say, 'There are going to be peaks and valleys'." [4]

The album as a whole was inspired by Hart's travels through Asia and Africa. The song "She's Everywhere" is a tribute to the worldwide popularity of singer-songwriter Madonna, while "Poster" expresses the anger and frustration Hart felt in China when he observed people his age whose individual choices were repressed for the collective good.
