Background and Conception
On May 6th, 2017, Poppy tweeted "Album one is done", confirming that the first album was finished. In the same tweet, Poppy also confirmed that there would be a tour to promote the album and that she knew when the album would be released. Later, it was confirmed by Titanic Sinclair that the album had been completed on April 13th, 2017. When asked by a fan if she could release the album herself, she stated that "There's too much fun to be had from now to then." After being interviewed for an article with Wired, the website accidentally leaked the release date of Poppy's album as October 6th, 2017. This release date coincided with the 6-year anniversary of Poppy's YouTube channel being created.
All songs were written and originally played on an acoustic guitar. They were later recorded in a studio and ended up on the album.
On September 8th, 2017, Poppy officially announced her debut album in the video "Poppy.Computer". It was released on October 6th, 2017.

On July 14th, 2017, she announced the tour with ticket presale beginning on July 19th, 2017 and tickets going on general sale on July 22nd 2017. The first leg took place in North America between October 19th, 2017 and November 22nd, 2017.
