Beethoven is a dog, who was first discovered by Emily Newton in her bedroom one morning. The whole family is soon introduced to the St. Bernard; however, the father George Newton has his moments with Beethoven, who ends up into different mishaps time after time. When not with the Newton family, Beethoven interacts with his puppies, or with animals outside of the house.
Unlike the movie, Beethoven could talk, at least among the other animals; incidentally he would also talk in the 2011 direct-to-video film, Beethoven's Christmas Adventure. The same plot was used in another animated series Free Willy, where the main character also could talk. Some of the music was used for the DIC cartoon, What-a-Mess.
"Carry You" was released as the album's first single in June 2013 and reached number-six in the United Kingdom, marking the group's first top ten track. In September 2013, the band confirmed their second single would be "Beautiful Life". It was released on 21 October, preceding the release of their debut studio-album by one week. The third single was "Loving You Is Easy" which charted at number 9 in Ireland, and charted in the lower regions of the UK Singles Chart.
Union J promoted the album by embarking on their first headlining tour, the Magazines + TV Screens Tour, throughout December 2013 and January 2014, in support of their first record release.
