Perform.00 is a collection of Howard Jones favorites re-recorded by Jones and the backup band that accompanied him on tour to support his 1998 album People, and on the VH-1 Big Rewind tour of the late 90s (where he appeared on the same bill as The Human League and Culture Club). The bassist for the tours and on this album was Nick Beggs, known better as the bassist for Kajagoogoo. Drummer Kevin Wilkinson and guitarist Robin Boult also contributed to both projects.

Many of the artist's older songs are given an updated, stadium rock sound; Jones plays mostly piano and organ, with only an occasional hint of his trademark synthesizers. There are three new tracks: "Love Is A Good Thing", "I Must Go" and "Someone You Need" (a collaboration with Duncan Sheik).
