"Reconnect" was the debut single of Irishart rock quartet, Director. It was released on 24 April 2006, eventually dominating the Irish airwaves throughout the summer and receiving much radio play from Irish radio stations such as RTÉ 2fm and Today FM. The single charted in Ireland at number ten, spending a total of twelve weeks in the Irish Singles Chart.
Sunday Tribune journalist Una Mullally called it an "inescapable track" which was "one of the singles of 2006". In the same publication, Neil Dunphy said: "The understated cool of this single made it the most ubiquitous homegrown song of the year: you can still hear it on every other TV link and, unlike Peter Bjorn and John's "Young Folks", it still isn't annoying".
