It was released on 17 June 1996 through A&M. The vinyl version has two extra songs: "Is It Me" and "Grateful Moon". The album's title is a pun on three-piece suite. Mercury was planning on releasing the album in the US in March 1997, before being pushed back to May to eventually being shelved. Dodgy's co-manager Dave Crompton commented that Mercury planned on releasing a single first but the band was against it. "We think their attitude was, 'We'll put it out and see what happens,' and we said, 'We want to have a career. We've got one in England and Europe, and we want one in the U.S. as well.' " The band eventually parted ways with Mercury. Crompton and partner Andrew Winters were aiming to find a new label to release the album in the summer.
