Roll with It is the fifth solo studio album by blue-eyed soul artist Steve Winwood. It topped the album charts in the United States, and has sold over three million copies. The title cut topped the pop singles and the album rock singles charts with subsequent hit status afforded the album tracks released as subsequent singles: "Don't You Know What the Night Can Do?" and "Holding On". "Don't You Know What the Night Can Do?" had been written by Winwood to be featured in an ad campaign for Michelob which began running on American television on the day of the Roll With It album's US release. Two other tracks from Roll With It: "Hearts on Fire" and "Put on Your Dancing Shoes", also achieved radio airplay.
