On November 22, 2005, Britney Spears released B in the Mix: The Remixes, her first remix album. It contained remixes of songs from her first four studio albums, as well as remixes for Someday (I Will Understand) and the unreleased song And Then We Kiss, the remix of which had been released earlier in October as a promotional single in Australia and New Zealand. Several DJ's worked on the record to create the remixes. At some point early in 2005, Jive Records had planned to release a Japan-exclusive remix album titled Greatest Remixes, but those plans didn't come to fruition. It was later reported by Billboard that Junkie XL had remixed a new song for Britney, that would be used to promote her perfume Fantasy and that would be included on a collection simply titled Remixed. In September 2005, a promotional EP titled Key Cuts from Remixed was sent to DJs in 12" vinyl and CD formats. It contained 2 to 5 remixes, depending on the version, which included mainly In the Zone tracks plus And Then We Kiss. It was on November 2005 that the titled of the compilation was confirmed by MTV, and a contest was held through her official fansite among those that pre-ordered the album, the prize being a copy of Britney & Kevin: Chaotic, a bottle of Fantasy and an autographed picture. The day of the release, a party was hosted at a club in Los Angeles by WorldOfBritney.com, which Britney also helped to pay, commenting through an official statement: "I just wanted to say that I love the idea of all my fans getting together to celebrate the release of my new album. I was happy to help! I hope you have a great night out at the club and dance all night long!" The album received mixed reviews and it peaked at #134 on the BB200, while landing at #4 on the Top Dance/Electronic albums chart. The international version of the album received an alternative cover.
On October 31, 2005, Britney Spears released the promotional single And Then We Kiss in Australia and New Zealand. The version of the song included in this single was actually the Junkie XL Remix. The song was written by Britney, Michael Taylor and Paul Barry, and produced by Taylor and Junkie XL. It was recorded in the same sessions as Breathe on Me (which was also produced by Taylor) since it was intended to be included on In the Zone (2003), but it failed to make the final tracklist. It was also supposed to be the UK & Japan bonus track of Britney & Kevin: Chaotic (2005), but it was ultimately replaced by Over to You Now. Finally, And Then We Kiss (Junkie XL Remix) appeared on Britney's first remix album B in the Mix: the Remixes (2005) as the only original song, as well as its promotional EP Key Cuts from Remixed. The song didn't receive a music video or live performance, but it managed to peak at #15 on the US Hot Dance Airplay chart and it was #1 hit in Israel. Junkie XL (Thomas Holkenborg) explained he wanted to make the song a 2006 version of Depeche Mode's Enjoy the Silence. The song appears on 2006's Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova videogame. Six years later, in September 2011, the original version of the song leaked online, confirmed by Junkie XL to be the real deal.
