It was released on July 10, 2007, in the United States and on September 3, 2007 in the United Kingdom, through Beggars Banquet Records. The album is named after a running gag from the television show Arrested Development. As of 2009, the album has sold an estimated amount of 30,000 copies.
"I was working on Marry Me before I joined The Polyphonic Spree and then I finished it while touring with them. Sufjan Stevens heard it and asked me to be in his band and open for him. While I was opening for Sufjan in London, the people from Beggars Banquet were there, so I got a record deal based off of that performance. Mike Garson had recorded with The Polyphonic Spree on The Fragile Army, so I got to know him, and he was a really, really kind, sweet guy. He was doing this thing on MySpace at the time where people would basically send him tracks, and he would do his amazing Mike Garson thing on top of it. I think that's how we did it: I sent him my song 'Your Lips Are Red' and he just did his awesome crazy Mike Garson thing. I don't think I own a copy of this album! I think I have a file somewhere, but it's on a laptop that has died. I haven't heard it in years. Listening back to your old records feels a little like looking at a high-school yearbook." – Annie "St Vincent" Clark
