Background[edit | edit source]

In September 2017, details for the 2018 Instant Fan Club offering were posted and mentioned among other items, the inclusion of two Dial-A-Song albums: "A Disc of Dial-A-Song 2015 Rarities" and "A Disc of All Dial-A-Song 2018 Songs". However, as 2018 progressed and much of the year's Dial-A-Song material consisted of songs from two other 2018 album releases — I Like Fun and The Escape Team — the band decided to consolidate the planned 2015 and 2018 Dial-A-Song discs into this album and a bonus disc, More Murdered Remains, to be included with first editions of the album.

Flansburgh stated in Vibe Reports that My Murdered Remains would be available on CD, vinyl and download, but would not be sent to streaming services such as Spotify.

The album's title is from a lyric in "Mrs. Bluebeard" — "I want to say I learned something valuable today / Alas my murdered remains are incapable of learning anything" — and was originally the working title for I Like Fun, where that song appeared.
