Christofer Ingle originally wanted to record every song with a different producer, all in different cities, to give each song a unique feel and its own style. The album would also include reworkings of "On The Brightside" and "Trouble."
Never Shout Never announced on February 8, 2012 that their then-titled Good Times would be released sometime in the summer of 2012. Ingle announced on Twitter that the album would be out by late fall. Ingle demoed the new songs through Loveway Records' Stickam page on June 4, 2012.
To promote Indigo, Never Shout Never embarked on a South American tour to promote the album early. The tour began in early November 2012 and consisted 6 shows. Ingle announced that we was getting the lineup together for the next tour, via Twitter on July 13, 2012. The Indigo Tour, the second tour to further promote the album, began in November 2012. The tour is composed of 22 show dates throughout North America. The tour was announced through the band's website on September 25, 2012.
Indigo has received generally positive reviews. Claire Sheridan of Alter The Press! states that "Christofer Drew is a storyteller, capturing his audience right up until the last resounding word like an author that keeps their readers hanging on until the end."Alternative Press' Evan Lucy wrote that "[the band] could have used an outside set of eats to make things a little more dynamic, reign in the more head-scratching moments and correct some mixing issues. So in the end, Indigo is just a new entry into Drew's discography, another example of the shape-shifting singer's musical nomadism." Alyssa McKinley of PropertyOfZack comments that "Never Shout Never have taken many pop infused influences to put a new spin on their music, yet again. While at certain points, it simply doesn’t work, standout tracks make Indigo an entirely worthwhile listen. Diverse in ingredients but consistent in flavor, this record is a step in a great direction for the band. But then again, who knows if direction is something that has ever mattered in the career of Never Shout Never."
