American producer Rick Rubin helped reunite the duo and co-produced the album.[8] Rubin said of the experience: "This album is extraordinary; Angus and Julia are truly unique musicians. They are authentic and pure people who do things from the heart. I've never worked with anyone like them before."[1] The album has been said to contain "blended harmonies [...] and more experimental guitar textures".[1]

The album is the highest-charting by the duo to date, reaching the top 10 in several countries including France, Germany, the Netherlands and New Zealand. With an average of 67 based on 7 reviews on review aggregator Metacritic, Angus & Julia Stone received generally favorable critical reception.[9]
