""Almost Love" for me is kind of my life story. It's these vignettes of relationships that never have the ending that you imagine or the perfect ending, which I think is not realistic."

"Almost Love" is the first single from Sabrina Carpenter's third album Singular: Act I. The song was released on June 6, 2018 and the music video was released on July 12, 2018. It was written by Sabrina Carpenter, Mikkel Storleer Eriksen, Steph Jones and Nate Campany.
On October 2, 2018, Carpenter performed "Almost Love" on The Late Late Show with James Corden. This marked her second appearance on the show following her April 2017 performance of "Thumbs". At the end of her performance, she spray painted "11/9" on the wall, confirming the release date of Singular: Act I to be November 9.
- Carpenter had the title of the song in the notes app on her phone for some time, as it was a reoccurring theme in her life.
- The song was written in 3 hours.
- The second verse took the longest for Carpenter and the other songwriters to write. The line "I want you like a loner wants an empty room" was the last line written for the song. It is one of Carpenter's favorite lyrics on Singular: Act I because of "how it paints a picture".
