The album contains three new songs: "This Love", which Rimes co-wrote alongside Marc Beeson and Jim Collins and speaks about her love for her then husband, Dean Sheremet; ""Last Thing on My Mind", a duet with Irishpop singer Ronan Keating; and "We Can", which had previously made it to the soundtrack to Legally Blonde 2. All three were eventually released as singles.
The album was originally released with a limited edition bonus track and DVD. The limited edition bonus track of "O Holy Night" was used to promote her 2004 What a Wonderful World holiday album. The limited edition DVD contained three music videos ("Blue", "How Do I Live", and "We Can") and the Music in High Places performance of "Can't Fight the Moonlight". The DVD also contained four thirty second sound bites each of which Rimes describes the making of the music videos and her enjoyment of her Music in High Places performance of "Can't Fight the Moonlight".
