On June 6 2006, Get Together was released as the third international single from the Confessions On A Dance Floor album on Warner Bros. Records.

The initial marketing for Confessions On A Dance Floor revealed plans to release Jump as the album’s third single. This was later revised after Get Together proved to be the third most popular digital download from the album after its first two singles, Hung Up and Sorry, warranting its release ahead of Jump, which became the fourth and final single.

Get Together was written by Madonna, Anders Bagge, Peer Åström & Stuart Price with production by Madonna & Price. The final version also includes a small sampling of string elements from the song’s original production (which only became evident once the original demos leaked to the internet several years later), hence the unusual “Original Production by Bagge & Åström” credit inclusion in the liner notes of the album and single.
