Steamy Windows was written by Tony Joe White and is the second single from the album Foreign Affair in Germany and America and the third one in England, including remixed dance versions from Justin Strauss. Tina used the track as the opening number at her Foreign Affair Tour in 1990, the What’s Love? Tour in 1993 and once again in 2008 / '09 at her 50th Anniversary Tour. Live versions are available on the Do You Want Some Action! home video from 1991 and the album TINA Live from 2009. She promoted the song also at several tv shows in Europe.

In the music video, directed by Andy Morahan and produced by Luc Roeg, Tina wears the same mini dress as on the cover of the single. She is dancing together with some background dancers, filmed through a wet glass. In-between, there are some scenes with couples in cars, filmed as well through the wet panes. The clip was originally released on the Foreign Affair EP on VHS, but is also available on the Simply The Best video collection on DVD.

Released in November 1989 in Germany and America and in February 1990 in England from Capitol / EMI Records on 7“ & 12“ vinyl, cassette and 3“ & 5“ CD, Steamy Windows reached #13 in England, #29 in Germany, #31 in Europe and #39 (Pop), #33 (Club Play) in America.

Tina Turner - Steamy Windows - Single

EMI Promo

TINA TURNER breaks her decision, taken after the monumental "Break Every Rule" tour two years ago, never more to go on tour, and simultaneously redeem the other promise that she would like to feel the stage again, if her latest LP "Foreign Affair" becomes successfully. Now, after several weeks on top of the German LP charts, the album achieved platinum status. Therefore, for the end of May and early June next year, fixed appointments in several German stadiums (Cologne, Munich, Berlin, Frankfurt, etc.) are booked. Ticket sales have already begun.

Until then, we all have to be satisfied with her studio recordings, but also her records fulfills all acoustic requirements. After "The Best," the second single is "STEAMY WINDOWS". The mid-tempo song was written from swamp rock king Tony Joe White, who also played the lead guitar. TINA TURNER's perfect voice, the trumpet section of Gary Barnacle and Jeff Bova and Dan Hartman's rustic production predestine this LP opener for the charts.
