Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" was included on the band's fourth compilation album Fresh as a Daisy – The Singles (2007). They had written over 30 tracks for inclusion on their next record; on the opening night, the band played seven of these new songs. It was promoted with an appearance on Top of the Pops and various festivals across three months in the UK, Spain and Portugal.

Scratchcard" and "I Thought You Were", outtakes from the album's sessions, were included on the career-spanning box set The Gathering Sound (2012), alongside the music video for "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)". English Beefcake" stars a man who ends relationships, while being hesitant in causing pain as a result of them.

The following month, the band revealed they were in the process of recording with Brian Eno, [4] doing pre-production. He added that the album had an underlying theme of distaste for "habits, addictions, [and] impulses that we can't control. Ben Folds was initially scheduled to support the band for their UK stint, but was replaced by Turin Brakes. On 31 May, Pleased to Meet You was announced for release in July, and the track listing was revealed. Inspired by playing the new songs live, the band decided to gather in a circle and record live-in-the-studio [8] at Ridge Farm Studios in Capel, Surrey with engineer Gary Langan.

Eno likened the process to when artists make their debut record: "they're full of enthusiasm and excitement and they know what they're doing and it's a pleasure. Fine" is a percussion-led song that is followed by "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)", a slow-building indie rock track with a psychedelic bridge section. The Shining", "Senorita", "Gaudi", "What Is It Good For" and "Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" were recorded at House in the Woods in Bletchingley. Two versions were released on CD: one with "Make It Alright" and "So Swell", and the other with "Stand" and a live version of "The Shining". The final show of their December tour was filmed, [41] and later released as the live/video album Getting Away with It.Getting Away with It (All Messed Up)" was released as a single on 25 June, [29] after being delayed a week from its original release date. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream publications, the album received an average score of 65, based on six reviews. Throughout July and September, the band performed at the T in the Park, Guildford Live, City in the Park, [30] Witnness, [35] Benicàssim, and Annual Youth Music festivals, across the UK, Spain and Portugal. A year after its release, it occurred to Booth that the song was about his son, whose middle name was Daniel, and his goddaughter Grace.

ChartAttack wrote that fans of the band's earlier hits, such as "Sit Down" and "Laid", would be "disappointed with this disc," however, "longtime James fans should find much to enjoy.

It was originally titled We Want Our Money Back, [5] before being re-titled Space, [15] and eventually Pleased to Meet You. He edited the track; after giving Booth a copy, he re-did the vocal take, resulting in the final version. He’s been christened James, obviously, and will appear on the sleeve of the forthcoming album, Pleased To Meet You. What Is It Good For" was engineered by Pettit and mixed by him, James and Bascombe at House in the Woods and Whitfield. Though noting it wasn't as "adventurous" of a release as Wah Wah is, the band made a record "whose songs are often times spacious and funky at the same time.
