The single was released in 1999 by the record label Warner Music Finland. It was the second and the last single from the album Hell of a Tester. It features a remixed version of the track "Tempo", which was remixed by DJ Midas and can't be found anywhere. Also the single contains a new version of the track "Life 705" for the year 1999, though this version of "Life 705" can be found on the band's compilation album, Hell of a Collection (2001).
"Swimming with the Kids" is a pretty funky song and not very serious.[according to whom?] It was written by lead singer Lauri Ylönen and produced by the band themselves and Teja Kotilainen. No music video has been made for this song.
