Duets is an album by American singer Frank Sinatra, released in 1993.

Recorded near the end of Sinatra's career, it consists of duets between Sinatra and other guest star singers from various genres; Sinatra personally chose the performers. It was advertised as “The Recording Event of The Decade.”

The album was a commercial success, reaching #2 on the Billboard albums chart and #5 in the UK and selling over 3 million copies in the U.S. It is the only Sinatra album to date to achieve triple platinum certification.

It received mixed critical notices, with complaints stemming from Phil Ramone's style of production and a lack of personal collaboration, since the guest singers were not physically present with Sinatra but instead were singing along to his pre-recorded vocal parts over a digital audio telecommunications link from EDnet.net.

The cover art displays a specially commissioned painting of Frank Sinatra by LeRoy Neiman.

Its sequel, Duets II, was released the following year. Both were packaged together in a "90th Birthday Limited Collector's Edition" released in 2005, that included an unreleased duet recording of "My Way" with Luciano Pavarotti.
