How We React and How We Recover is produced by Jeffrey Lesser and Jason Robert Brown. Stacey Mindich and Kurt Deutsch serve as executive producers. Brown's first solo recording in over a decade, it is a politically charged, far-reaching rumination on love, family, and music.

The release coincides with New York City Center's Encores! Off-Center production of Brown's New York debut show Songs for a New World (Concert Production), which runs June 27-30.
