Following the success of 1980's Diana , produced by Chic, Motown released this set in early 1981 consisting of old and newly recorded love songs by Ross and Masser.
"It's My Turn" was the main theme from a 1980 movie starring Michael Douglas and Jill Clayburgh and had been released both on the soundtrack album and as a single prior to the To Love Again compilation, becoming a top ten hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Two of the three new recordings, "One More Chance" and "Cryin' My Heart Out for You", were also issued as singles. The final new recording, "Stay With Me", was previously recorded by Roberta Flack in 1979. All tracks on side 2 of the original vinyl were previously released archive recordings by Ross and Masser from the 1970s.
To Love Again was to be Ross' last album of new material for Motown (before her return in 1989) after signing a $20 million contract with RCA.
In 2003 Motown/Universal Music re-released the album doubling the number of tracks with a range of assorted ballads from her back catalogue. Two of the tracks, "We're Always Saying Goodbye" and "Share Some Love", had been previously unreleased. It also marked the first time many of the songs appeared on compact disc.
