Doiron's former Eric's Trip bandmate Rick White produced and played on the album. Three songs on the album — "I Woke Myself Up", "No More" and "The Wrong Guy" — also include contributions by Mark Gaudet and Chris Thompson, the other two former members of Eric's Trip. This was the first time the four musicians released new material together since the breakup of Eric's Trip in 1996, although they have performed together on stage a number of times.
On July 10, 2007, the shortlist for the Polaris Music Prize was revealed. Woke Myself Up was announced as a finalist, alongside such other acts as Arcade Fire, The Besnard Lakes, and Joel Plaskett Emergency.
Woke Myself Up also topped the !earshot campus/community radio Top 50 for January to December 2007.
The album artwork was created by Julie's friend, artist and animator Tara Wells of Sackville, New Brunswick, who also created the video for "Swan Pond".
