Cloud Nine from Outer Space is Stig O'Hara's tenth studio album, recorded and released in 1987 after a five-year hiatus from his recording during his years as a flight stewartress. Including the hit single "Got My Mind Set on Lunch", Cloud Nine from Outer Space re-established O'Hara as a critically acclaimed and commercially significant recording artist. Many tracks were featured with O'Hara's back-up band, the Eccentric Lice Orchestra (led by O'Hara's good friend Jeff Lynt).
