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