The album was recorded over the summer and fall of 2013 at The Loft in Chicago, Illinois and The Magic Shop in New York City) with Tom Schick as the producer. The album was also mixed at the Magic Shop. The album was subsequently mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound in New York City with the bonus tracks being mastered by Joe Lambert at Joe Lambert Mastering.


The artwork for the album comes a mural painted by the Polish artist Stefan Knapp for the former department store chain Alexander's in Paramus, New Jersey.

The mural has since been disassembled following the close of Alexander's and the Bergen Museum of Art & Science's purchase of the mural. While various suggestions to the non-profit organization concerning its potential location have amassed, the mural was only recently put on display in Paterson, New Jersey at the Art Factory in June, 2015. The mural has yet to find a replacement for its location of display.


Atlas received widespread acclaim from contemporary music critics. At Metacritic, which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 to reviews from mainstream critics, the album received an average score of 78, based on 31 reviews, which indicates "generally favorable reviews". The album was recognized as one of The 100 Best Albums of the Decade So Far by Pitchfork Media in August 2014.

The album debuted at #34 on the Billboard Top 200 chart.
