Naked and Sacred was Chynna Phillips' debut (and to date only) solo album, released three years after her departure from the pop group Wilson Phillips. She was the only member of the group to remain on her label, EMI, after they went on an indefinite break in late 1992. It was released on November 7, 1995 in the U.S. and was a commercial failure, selling only 22,000 copies in the United States according to Billboard.com. Chynna co-wrote 9 of the 11 tracks, featuring productions from Rick Nowels, Glen Ballard (who produced the majority of Wilson Phillips' previous work), and Desmond Child. According to Chynna, she was offered $1 million to record a solo album for EMI, and was dropped shortly after due to the album's disappointing sales.
