Prisoner is the sixteenth studio album by American singer-actress Cher, released on October 22, 1979 by Casablanca Records. Prisoner had a more moderate success, mostly due to the dance track "Hell on Wheels". Prisoner (initially planned to be released under the title Mirror Image) was Cher's second album of 1979, and was released months after Take Me Home. Cher appeared on the album's cover virtually naked and draped in chains, spurring controversy among some women's rights groups for her perceived "sex slave" image.

Since there was nothing left from the album's original plan, the title was changed into "Prisoner" before release. Prisoner has been released on CD together with the first Casablanca Records album Take me Home, in a CD entitled, The Casablanca Years. This CD unites all the tracks from both albums, merging them onto one single CD.
