"Mr. Mysterious" is the third single from Vanessa Amorosi's album Hazardous.[2] "Mr. Mysterious" was first performed live on TV at the 2009 Perth Telethon on 3 October 2009.[3] Amorosi filmed the video for "Mr. Mysterious" in February and the song was released digitally in April 2010.[1][2]
Seany B, who is known for being the performer of the TV Rock hit "Flaunt It", makes a guest appearance in the song, doing a rap verse. Ms Amorosi describes the song as "a cheeky track about the guy you know nothing about but you can't get out of your head".[4]

The first episode of Hey Hey It's Saturday in 2010 featured Vanessa Amorosi, performing her latest single "Mr. Mysterious".[5] Before release as a digital single, the song was being used in the ads by the Network Ten for the British television drama series Merlin.
