Rumours spread in the wake of the album's release that Klaatu were, in fact, a secretly reunited Beatles.[2] The album was moderately successful in the United States, largely as a result of the Beatles rumours.[3] Capitol Records seized the opportunity by giving elusive answers to press inquiries regarding the rumour, which further fueled media attention and publicity.

A remastered version of the album was released on Klaatu's indie record label "Klaatunes" in 2011. To accompany this release, a music video was made for the remastered version of "Calling Occupants".[4]
