Dear You is Jawbreaker's only major label album. Released on September 12, 1995 through DGC Records, it is their fourth and final full-length studio album.

Singer/guitarist Blake Schwarzenbach underwent surgery on his vocal chords shortly before the recording of Dear You. Containing much less raspy vocals than any previous album, the record contained relatively higher production values compared to the band's previous albums. Schwarzenbach later confirmed that the move to DGC was necessary for the band to stay around, as they had been on the verge of breaking up.
