"Baby Britain" was released in 1999 by record label DreamWorks as the second single from his fourth studio album, XO. The single did not chart in the United States but reached number 55 in the UK Singles Chart.
A music video, directed by Steve Hanft, was made for the song. In the video, Smith can be seen in a recording studio playing various instruments, including a guitar, piano, mandolin and drums. There is also footage of Smith playing live.
