The single charted in Ireland at number ten, spending a total of twelve weeks in the Irish Singles Chart.
National broadcaster, RTÉ, noted the song alongside third single "Leave It to Me" as one of the better tracks on the album, We Thrive on Big Cities. "Reconnect" has also been referred to as one of Director's "biggest hits".
- "Reconnect" — 4:31

"Reconnect" was performed at the 2007 Meteor Music Awards where Director won Best New Irish Act.
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".
