Walk into Light (1983) is the debut solo album released by Jethro Tull frontman Ian Anderson. (The album A was originally intended to be released as an Ian Anderson album, but instead was released as a Jethro Tull album.) In many ways Walk into Light is a two-hander, with Anderson working closely with then keyboard player in Jethro Tull, Peter-John Vettese. The repetitive melody from the first track, "Fly By Night", was later used in the main element in the original theme music to the 1998 TV series All Saints, without attribution.

Despite being an Ian Anderson solo album, the album was actually the most collaborative work Anderson had ever done, as Peter-John Vettese co-wrote five songs and had a strong influence on the album's style and sound.
