Originally, All Alone was going to be called Come Waltz with Me. Although the title and the accompanying specially written title song were dropped before the album's release, the record remained a stately collection of waltzes, arranged and conducted by Gordon Jenkins. The original title track is included as a bonus track on the 1999 compact disc release of the album. This was the first studio album from Sinatra to not make the U.S. Top Twenty since 1950.

All of the tracks on the album are torch songs, hence the lonely name of the album. Almost half of the tracks are written by Irving Berlin.

The cover is a trimmed portion of a painting that hung in Sinatra's Palm Springs home.
