Before its release, Beck said the album was not a „stripped down“ record, in contrast with his previous Godrich collaborations Mutations and Sea Change. According to Beck, „Nigel Godrich said he wanted to do a hip-hop record“ before they began work on the album. „And in a way it is, and in a way it isn’t. It has hip-hop songs, and my previous work with him was Mutations and Sea Change, these sort of introspective records, and so this new one is sort of bringing those two worlds together.“
In an interview with the BBC, Beck said the album had been „painful“ to make:
It started out painless, and ended up being painful. It’s as if we made the album once, and we made it again, and we made it a third time. We started the record in 2003, and we got together annually, the producer [Nigel Godrich] and I. We combed over everything, and got rid of the things we were tired of, the things that seemed trite.
The first single in North America was „Nausea,“ which officially went to radio on September 5, 2006. The first single in the UK was „Cellphone’s Dead“, with an official video directed by Michel Gondry. „Think I’m In Love“ went to US radio as the second and final single and became a Modern Rock and Triple A radio hit, garnering renewed interest in The Information.
On February 27, 2007, a „deluxe version“ of the album was released. It contained the original album plus three songs only available internationally, six remixes, a complete printing of the lyrics, a DVD with all the studio-released videos plus bonus non-studio-released videos of „Nausea“ and „Cellphone’s Dead“, and four different sticker sheets for the album cover.
