Bloc Party's second album, A Weekend in the City, was produced by Garret "Jacknife" Lee.[27] It was released in February 2007,[28] although it was leaked in November 2006.[29] It became available for download on the UK iTunes store before the physical release, and reached the number 2 spot on the UK Albums Chart.[30] The album also reached number 2 on the Australian and Belgian charts,[31][32] and debuted at number 12 in the Billboard 200, with 48,000 copies sold.[33] The first single, "The Prayer", was released on 29 January,[34] and became the band's highest charting single in the UK Top 40, reaching number 4.[35] In the build up to the release of the album, BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe aired a live set by the band from Maida Vale studios on 30 January 2007, featuring a mix of old and new songs.[36] On 1 February 2007, A Weekend in the City was made available to listen to for free through the Bloc Party's official MySpace page.[37]

The next single, "I Still Remember", was Bloc Party's highest charting American single, peaking at number 24 on the Modern Rock Chart.[38] The band released their third single, "Hunting for Witches", with an accompanying video clip in August 2007. The single became their only ARIA Chart entry, peaking at number 20.[39] In October 2007, it was announced that Bloc Party would release a new single, "Flux", on 13 November—ahead of their end of year gigs.[40] The electronic song, also produced by Jacknife Lee,[41] was very different from previous singles released by the band.[42]
