These Foolish Things is the debut solo studio album by Bryan Ferry, who at the time was still Roxy Music's lead vocalist. The album was released in October 1973 on Island Records in the UK, and Atlantic Records in the United States. It was a commercial and critical success, peaking at number 5 on the albums chart in the United Kingdom. The album is considered to be a departure from Roxy Music's sound, because it consists entirely of cover versions, mainly of standard songs.

He went on to release three solo albums during this period, Let's Stick Together (1976), In Your Mind (1977) and The Bride Stripped Bare (1978). All three albums reached the UK Top 20, but by this time his career had begun to wane. Roxy Music reconvened in 1979, with Ferry, Manzanera, Thompson and Mackay (Jobson was no longer a member). On 26 November 2012, he released a new album entitled The Jazz Age with the Bryan Ferry Orchestra. The album features new jazz renditions of some of Ferry's older hits (from both his solo discography and with Roxy Music). However, the album was a commercial failure, peaking at No. 50 on the UK Albums Chart, the lowest of Ferry's career. However, film director Baz Luhrmann asked to use Ferry's song "Love Is The Drug" from The Jazz Age album for the 2013 film The Great Gatsby.
