The band released a radio edit of the track for free download on their website on 13 May 2010.
Each track on the album was written by band members Karl Hyde and Rick Smith in Essex, before being sent to producers well known for their contributions to trance, drum and bass and dubstep. The album sees further collaboration with Mark Knight and D. Ramirez, whose 2009 single, "Downpipe", featured lyrics and vocals by Hyde.
Barking received mostly positive reviews from most music critics. The album debuted at number twenty-six on the UK Albums Chart, selling 5,146 copies in its first week.
There are seven slightly modified variations of the cover artwork - depending on edition and format - all created by John Warwicker.
The album is named after Barking, an eastern borough of London.
