Moby talked about the track on his website blog, saying "'The Day' was written in a hotel room in Spain at dawn when I hadn't slept. It was a beautiful hotel room, a beautiful perfect hotel room and it was six or seven in the morning. I wrote it on an acoustic guitar and recorded it on my phone, brought it home and re-recorded it with old broken down electronics that I have in my studio".
The song was released on April 2 on iTunes, and a promo CD was available from April 4. The official release was May 9, along with remixes.
On April 21, he released the song's video, directed by Evan Bernard. The video stars Heather Graham as a beautiful angel who slays demons in a hospital. The video is intercut with patients lying in bed, as well as Moby singing the song as other people lie on the ceiling.
The song appears in the 2013 film Trance.
