"Tonight" is the third proper single from The Big Pink's debut album A Brief History of Love, and their fifth single overall. "Tonight" was released on 7" vinyl and as a digital download on April 26, 2010. The single features a new recording of "Tonight," produced by Paul Epworth (who also receives writing credit on this version of the song), and the band's cover of the Beyoncé song "Sweet Dreams" as the B-side. The single comes packaged in a fold-out sleeve with a coloured elastic band as well.
Following the single's release, a digital download-only EP featuring exclusive remixes by underground DJs and independent artists was made available on the band's website for free.
