The album yielded two hit singles. The first, "Hey Deanie", was written by Eric Carmen, who also wrote the song "That's Rock 'n' Roll" (which was a hit from Cassidy's first solo album). "Hey Deanie" reached #7 in early 1978. For the second single, also following the formula of his first album, Cassidy remade a 1960s hit, in this case The Lovin' Spoonful's "Do You Believe in Magic?" (which was written by John Sebastian). That single became a modest hit, peaking at #31 on the US Billboard Hot 100.

Born Late was certified platinum.[2] Unlike his first album, Cassidy wrote or co-wrote half of the songs. The track "It's Up To You" was co-written with Cassidy by Lost In Space child-star Billy Mumy.

"Carolina's Comin' Home" is a cover of White Plains.
