Brian Cadd had relocated to Los Angeles in 1975 and signed with Capitol Records shortly after.[1] He released White on White in 1976 with little success.[1] He began working on his second Capitol album, Yesterdaydreams, shortly after.[1] It appeared in December 1978 on Festival Records/Interfusion Records in Australia and Capitol Records in North America.[1][2] Two singles were released from the album, "Yesterdaysdreams" (October 1978) and "Skating on Thin Ice" (April 1979).[1]

In his 2010 autobiography, From This Side of Things, he said that the music for this album did not fit the production: the songs were written with a rock and roll flavour but were mixed to have more of a pop sound.[3] He described it as "pop music on acid".[3]
