The album was preceded by the release of the title track "Outta Here" as the first single. The song was released in April 2009, reaching top ten in the Netherlands and the UK, number 12 in New Zealand, and number 26 in Belgium. After the album's release, "Admit It" was released as the second single on 4 September 2009 and peaked at 28 in the Netherlands.
In April 2009, Denters confirmed on Dutch radio station Radio 538 that her debut album, Outta Here, would be released on 22 May 2009, also confirming that the album is a mix of pop and R&B with both ballads, and uptempo tracks.
Speaking in October 2009, Esmée explained to noted UK R&B writer Pete Lewis of the award-winning Blues & Soul her reasons for naming her debut album after her debut single: "I called it 'Outta Here' because to me that one song in itself actually encapsulates what the album in its entirety is about. You know, it's a pop song, it has a bit of an R&B feel, it has some rock in it, a little bit of dance... So, because I thought that mixture of styles was just so representative of the record as a whole, I decided to name the album after it."
