10 is the tenth studio album by English rock band The Stranglers, originally released in June 1990 via Epic Records.

The Stranglers are an English rock band who emerged via the punk rock scene. Scoring some 23 UK top 40 singles and 17 UK top 40 albums to date in a career spanning four decades, The Stranglers are one of the longest-surviving and most "continuously successful" bands to have originated in the UK punk scene.

10 was the last album to feature guitarist and lead singer Hugh Cornwell.

There was a big band sound to this album, possibly due to the production work of Roy Thomas Baker and the continued use of a horn section. One of the highlights was the cover version of Question Mark & The Mysterians' hit "96 Tears", which reached #17 on the UK Singles Chart). Cornwell has expressed satisfaction with the way this album turned out.

The album cover art shows the members of the band dressed up as ten of the most notable world leaders of the time (left to right: Yasser Arafat, Rajiv Gandhi, Pope John Paul II, Mikhail Gorbachev, Margaret Thatcher, George H. W. Bush, Fidel Castro, Muammar al-Gaddafi, Benazir Bhutto and Joshua Nkomo).

Despite the album's American-friendly sound and the moderate success of "Sweet Smell of Success" in America (reaching #5 on the US Modern Rock Chart), the band did not undertake an American tour. Cornwell, feeling the band had come to a halt in their artistic evolution, decided to leave the band following the last gig on the supporting tour.

Singles released in the UK for this album were "96 Tears" and "Sweet Smell Of Success".

This album is a 2018 reissue on 180 gram heavyweight black vinyl with a printed inner sleeve and digital download code, pressed in Europe via Epic Records.
