When it was released in 1989, the album went straight to number one in the UK, where it has since been certified double platinum. It spawned four singles, all of which reached the UK top 30: "Revival", "Don't Ask Me Why", "The King and Queen of America", and "Angel". In the United States, "(My My) Baby's Gonna Cry" was also released as a single but failed to chart.
On 14 November 2005, SonyBMG repackaged and released Eurythmics' back catalogue as Deluxe Edition reissues, including We Too Are One. The original track listing was supplemented with bonus tracks and remixes (see below).
Despite the four main singles being reasonably successful, none of them were included on the duo's 2005 "Ultimate Collection" album.
