Wildest Dreams is the ninth solo studio album from Tina Turner with a total of six single releases. It contains the theme song for the movie Goldeneye, which was already a single in 1995, the two cover songs Missing You and Unfinished Sympathy and songs written by the Pet Shop Boys and Sheryl Crow. The title song In Your Wildest Dreams includes guest vocals from Antonio Banderas on the European version and from Barry White on the North American release. Sting is also a special guest vocalist on the song On Silent Wings .The American version of the album was released with an alternate cover and some changes in the tracklist, including a hidden track. The Japanese edition includes the additional bonus track „Love Is A Beautiful Thing,“ which is also available on the Diana Tribute album from 1997. While Tina was on tour, a two disc Special Tour Edition was released, including remixes, non-album tracks and live recordings, recorded at the Amsterdam concert of her Wildest Dreams Tour.

For promotion, Parlophone Records in Europe released a promo cassette with six full tracks on side A and one minute of each track on side B as well as an 'open ended' interview on compact disc, in which Tina talks about stage performances, previous tours and albums, her image as a sex symbol, Goldeneye and of course about the new songs. The interview is divided in 46 cuts  with a total duration of 47 minutes. Virgin Records in America released a „NAC-Sampler“ on compact disk, featuring three edited songs from the album, two of them only available on this promo.
