Better Together is Fifth Harmony's debut extended play. It was their first release after placing third on the second season of American televised reality show The X Factor, and was released on October 18, 2013 through Epic Records. The first single, "Miss Movin' On" was released on July 16, 2013, and a promotional single, "Me & My Girls" was released on July 18, 2013.
Fifth Harmony spoke about the extended play in an exclusive interview, saying "It’s definitely going to sound different. All of the songs have a common thread – they’re all a genre of pop, we’ve got a ballad in there. There’s an 80’s song in there, they all sound really different, but there is a connection there".
The group served as one of the opening acts for Cher Lloyd's I Wish Tour which started on September 6, 2013. All of the songs appearing on the extended play were performed as part of their setlist, including bonus tracks that appear on the iTunes and Target versions. On the day of the release of Better Together, Fifth Harmony were interviewed during a 30-minute "Live From MTV" stream on MTV. They also performed "Miss Movin' On" on Live with Kelly and Michael and The Arsenio Hall Show.
The quintet appeared on VH1's Big Morning Buzz Live with Carrie Keagan on October 23. Other promotional visits during the week of release included visits to Billboard headquarters and a trip to the top of the Empire State Building with members of the media for photo ops and short interviews.
