Japanese Tears is the third album by guitarist Denny Laine, released shortly before the demise of Paul McCartney's band Wings, of which Laine was a member. The album was released in 1980. In January 1980, Wings planned a tour of Japan. However, upon the band's arrival at the airport in Japan, Paul McCartney was arrested for marijuana possession. The tour was cancelled, and McCartney then decided to release a solo album (McCartney II) instead of touring, putting Wings on hiatus.

Q: Your Japanese Tears album expresses muscular vitality and vulnerability. Did it represent where you stood as both an artist and a musician in 1980? A: Obviously, it was expired with Paul’s bust in Japan.

While with Wings, Laine never got much of a chance to showcase his songs, what with Macca being head honcho and all, and he accumulated many of these cuts while working with that band. Going back as far as 1973, and using the original Wings lineup on a couple of tracks, Laine adds songs here and there along the way in a patchwork quilt sort of way to fill up Japanese Tears
