One is the Bee Gees' sixteenth studio album, released in April 1989 (in the United States the release was delayed, coming out in August of the same year). After the European success of the previous album, E.S.P., the Gibb brothers began to work in the One album in early 1988. In March, brother Andy suddenly died and the Bee Gees took a break until August when they returned to the studio to complete the album. The style of One was more melancholic than E.S.P., and heavily influenced by the loss of their brother. The first single from the album, "Ordinary Lives", dedicated to Andy, was an example of that. The album had a little impact in the market. Other singles from the album included "One" and "Tokyo Nights". Despiting the success of the single "One" in the US, the album only peaked at #68 there. In the UK reached #29, selling better in Germany and Switzerland, hitting the Top 10 in both countries. As of 2006, One sold approximately 1 million copies worldwide.
