Music from "The Elder" is the ninth studio album released by American rock band Kiss. The album marked a substantial departure from their previous output with its epic concept and orchestral elements: its sales were so poor that Kiss did not embark on a supporting tour for the first time in its eight-year history, opting instead to make a handful of promotional appearances.

The band didn’t even have a proper tour to support the album, only making a couple of TV appearances. In the October 1993 issue of Goldmine Magazine, Gene and Paul rated their work. Gene said, As a KISS album I give it a zero. As a bad Genesis album, I give it a two. Paul Stanley gave it a question mark
By the end of 1980, Kiss knew that their next album had to be a strong one, a glorious return to hard rock à la their classic Destroyer. New drummer Eric Carr had refueled the band's desire to rock, and the quartet began working on a straight-ahead rock album in early 1981. Midway through, the band felt that they were rewriting past songs, and the sessions were aborted. Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley then came up with the idea of recording a concept album, based on a mythical original story by Simmons. Destroyer producer Bob Ezrin was back and encouraged the band's concept album idea.
