The album was credited to "Neil Finn and Friends"; Finn would later use "7 Worlds Collide" as the name of the ongoing collaborative project.

The title of this album, as well as the 7 Worlds Collide project, is derived from the line "Seven worlds will collide / whenever I am by your side" from Crowded House's 1993 single "Distant Sun".
