Frahm began working on forming the album during the Coronavirus pandemic, sifting through his archives to select his favourite pieces.

Old Friends New Friends subsequently features 23 solo piano compositions — the majority of which have previously not been released — created between 2009 to 2021.

It follows his collaborative 2X1=4 album with F.S. Blumm, which was released in September.
