"I Stand Alone" was the third and last of Agnetha Fältskog's 1980s post-ABBA solo albums, released in November 1987. Fältskog would not have another major studio release for 17 years, until her successful comeback in 2004 with "My Colouring Book".

"I Stand Alone" was produced by Peter Cetera, the former singer and bass guitar player with American rock band Chicago. He duetted with Fältskog on the track "I Wasn't the One (Who Said Goodbye)", (No.93 Billboard Hot 100 and No.19 Adult Contemporary in the U.S.) The co-producer of the album was Bruce Gaitsch, with whom Fältskog was in a relationship with at the time.

The musical style of the album was very different from the European sounds of Faltskog's previous two albums, and reflected the West Coast American influences of the producers. The album became Sweden's best-selling LP of 1988, where it remained at No.1 for eight weeks. It also reached the Top 20 in Norway and Belgium, and No.22 in the Netherlands, but fared less well on charts elsewhere, only reaching No.47 in West Germany, No.72 in the United Kingdom, No.93 in Japan and No.96 in Australia.

Fältskog also made several promo videos for singles from the album, including The Last Time and Let It Shine. When the third single, I Wasn't the One (Who Said Goodbye), appeared on the U.S. Billboard Chart in April 1988, Warner Music asked her to make another video immediately. Although it was a duet with Peter Cetera, he did not appear in the video.

For the cover of the album and promotional interviews, Fältskog appeared with a "new" spiky blonde hair look.

Fältskog made a very rare trip on an airplane to Los Angeles to record the album. After it was completed, she never flew again due to her much-publicised fear of flying. She did, however, admit that the flight was worth it.
