Changes is the ninth and final Colgems studio album released by the Monkees. Issued in June 1970 as COS-119 after the departure of Mike Nesmith from the group, it featured the Monkees as a duo—Micky Dolenz and Davy Jones—with little collaboration between the two.

Seven of the album's twelve selections were written by Jeff Barry, most with co-writers Andy Kim or Bobby Bloom, including both sides of the single, "Oh My My" b/w "I Love You Better". Ned Albright and Steven Soles contributed two songs together, with another from Neil Goldberg. Dolenz re-recorded an earlier demo, "Midnight Train" with his sister, Coco Dolenz, and the album concludes with Tommy Boyce and Bobby Hart's "I Never Thought It Peculiar".

With the popularity of the Monkees brand on the wane, and only two Monkees left, the album initially failed to chart. When Rhino Records reissued the album in 1986, however, it reached #152 on the Billboard 200.
