The album was first announced in November 2017 and a release date for the album in April 2018. It consists of "talk-box-assisted pop songs about dating mishaps, comically disastrous relationships and anxiety-inducing sexual encounters." The album's recording process began 2 years before its release with Chromeo stating "...we were impatient to do the new record - so we spent the last two years working on this one [Head Over Heels]."
Speaking about the album, Chromeo said: "The mission statement for this album, for us, was to kind of pen this overarching love letter to funk music and the different kinds of funk music that have influenced us throughout the years since we discovered funk music when we were teenagers all the way until now... But it's also sort of, you know, going back to the real roots of funk. We made this one much more live, just a little less electronic than our previous two, three albums."
The artwork displays the legs of Chromeo members instead of a pair of women's legs, which is their signature symbol that has been on the artwork of previous albums.
