"Peaches and Me" is the debut album from American-Trinidadian recording artist, Suzanne Kaline. Production of the album begun in early 2013 when she released her debut single, "I'm Fine". At the time, the single sparked critical acclaim due to the strongness of Kaline's vocals. She then announced on Twitter that the name of the album would be "I'm Fine". Production of the album haulted when she married her fiance, Marco Valit. The production resumed in January 2014, when she wrote songs with her friend, LeAnn Giambi, and performed five of them to a live audience at one of Giambi's concerts. The album was eventually retitled after visiting Walt Disney World in March 2014, and visiting a restaurant with a similar title. The album was pre-released digitally on December 16, 2013, before being pre-released to stores on December 19, 2013, and ultimately released on April 7, 2014. A re-release of the album which includes the songs: "Strap Me Down" & "My Theme Song" was released on December 15, 2014.
