Hayes announced that Savage Garden had broken up in October during a chat with an Australian journalist. Hayes thought the information would be saved for a later article; it was not.
When confronted with this information during the early morning hours, before an unrelated interview, Jones denied the break-up of the band. However, it appears that Jones did not believe the reporter was accurately quoting Hayes and denied what he thought was yet another breakup rumour. Still, the fact that Jones took a back seat in all promotional activities for Affirmation seems indicative that Jones was not content to remain within Savage Garden as it had operated in the past.
Savage Garden had sold over 23 million albums by that stage. In , manager of Savage Garden, John Woodruff confirmed that Jones had announced his intention of leaving Savage Garden prior to the promotion for Affirmation.
Woodruff criticised the media for their treatment of Hayes.

The first single, "Pop! It was later covered by Human Nature , resulting in an Australian top 20 single in April off their Walk The Tightrope album, and was then re-recorded in featuring Hayes himself.
The compilation also includes a second track by Hayes called "California". Both of these tracks harken back to Hayes' early sound, although still retaining some of the electronic flourishes from The Tension and the Spark. On 9 July , Hayes announced that he had parted ways with Columbia Records after ten years and 24 million album sales together.
The tour following this release saw Hayes play the iconic Sydney Opera House. The album was a double-disc, with 25 tracks.
