Following a meeting with Joseph Cross, he was enlisted to produce the band's next album; sessions were held at 80 Hertz Studios. evokes the sound of Doves, and describes a woman who enjoys the idea of love than the person she is with. Two years later we made the move to our present address, 35 The Headrow, where we have remained ever since.

Fray described the final artwork as attempting to "convey that kind of elegance but a bit more industrial". AllMusic reviewer Heather Phares said the album follows the "polished, anthemic vein" of Falcon, while "bring[ing] back some of the swagger [from their debut] that was missing from those songs". Following its completion, Courteeners appeared at various festivals leading up to a one-off show at the Manchester Arena, and the release of the lead single "Lose Control" in December 2012.The Irish Times 's Lauren Murphy echoed a similar sentiment, stating that the most prominent issue with the band's "output is that it’s simply far too ordinary", explaining that it "rarely switch[es] tempo beyond a sturdy, mid-placed plod".

was released as the album's third single on 6 December 2013; the seven-inch vinyl edition featured a remix of "Are You in Love with a Notion? Push Yourself" is reminiscent of the disco-rock direction of Two Door Cinema Club and Franz Ferdinand. Fray intentionally wanted to work with someone within the members' age range; he met Cross while at a party, who inquired about what new material the band had. The song was released as the album's second single on 6 May 2013; the seven-inch vinyl edition featured a live version of "Last of the Ladies" as its B-side, while the digital download version included "Let Down Your Guard" and a remix of "Van Der Graaff".

It has been two years since Courteeners last album Falcon, which charted at number 6 and followed the bands number 4 debut album St Jude. The album reached number six in the United Kingdom, number seven in Scotland and number 85 in Ireland. He explained that the material on Falcon were written as acoustic songs, whereas for the new material, he was "building [them] up and getting drum beats and bass parts down" prior to them entering a studio. Islington Gazette 's Stephen Moore commented that the "sluggish feel to much of the LP that drowns out, or at least distracts from, what was once a key strength". It evolved out of "Gin on Friday", a song that dated back from the period of their 2007 debut single "Cavorting"; while "Gin on Friday" revolved about being in one's late teens, "Here Come the Young Men" saw the band "looking back over those years, but also saying that we’re not finished yet".Anna is an indie pop album that expands on the use of synthesizers and incorporation of electronic sounds that were partially alluded to with Falcon.

Fray broke his ankle on New Year's Day 2012, tearing ligaments in the process, resulting in him needing four months to recover. In June and July 2011, the band performed at Delamere Forest, in addition to playing at the Haigh Live and Isle of Wight Festivals. Four days later, the artwork was revealed, showing a woman in front of cooling towers, wearing sunglasses with a reflection of a horse in them.

Jamie Carson of Clash said it was "full of uninspired and recycled riffs starkly illuminated by the God awful woe-is-me-I’m-northern lyrics". Between June and August 2012, Courteeners appeared at the Chester Rocks, T in the Park and Reading and Leeds Festivals festivals, as well as a one-off show in Manchester to coincide with that year's Olympic Games. After frontman Liam Fray broke his ankle, he re-listened to the material they had up to that point and felt they could be improved on.
