"Release the Pressure" was the third single released under the Leftfield name and the first to involve Paul Daley with writing duties after he joined the group. The song was released only on 12" in 1992. Unlike previous releases that had been released on the Outer Rhythm record label, Leftfield had now officially split from the Outer Rhythm record label. Major labels had offered them deals yet both members didn't want to give up creative control to any major company. They formed the Hard Hands record label with "Release the Pressure" being the label's first official release. The song featured reggae singer Earl Sixteen on vocals. It made the top 20 in the UK charts. It also featured at Number 1 in the "Melody Maker" "Stone Free Chart of the Year".
