Ghost on the Canvas is the 61st album by Glen Campbell, which was intended to be Campbell's farewell studio recording following him being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. The production of the album was announced in March 2010.
Campbell and his wife delayed informing the public about his illness until shortly before he embarked on the "Glen Campbell Goodbye Tour". The Campbells decided to announce his diagnosis so that his audience would understand why the performer might mistake the lyrics to songs or behave erratically. They also wished to combat the social stigma of Alzheimer's, for the benefit of others suffering from the disease.
