Pollard explained the writing process and the title of Normal Happiness in a Gothamist interview:
"I wrote a total of 47 songs and it just so happened that my favorite ones happened to be the poppier ones and that tone or attitude carried over into the recording process itself. I didn't feel the final product was overly "sappy" so I decided to call it "Normal Happiness". Not too heavy and not light. "
Working titles for the album were You Were Saying? and Gasoline Ragtime .
The album received a 72/100 rating at metacritic .
