Stereo is the fourth solo album by Paul Westerberg. At this point in his career, the former Replacements leader was entering a new phase. He said goodbye to professional studios and big-name producers like Brendan O'Brien and Don Was, recording the album in his basement by himself. As detailed in the liner notes, Westerberg made no effort to fix imperfections like the tape running out in the middle of a song. Stereo was packaged with Mono, which he credited to his Grandpaboy alter ego.

"Postcards from Paradise", a cover of a Flesh for Lulu song, is located on the same track as "Call That Gone?"
