The collection features Diamond Life (1984), Promise (1985), Stronger Than Pride (1988), Love Deluxe (1992), Lovers Rock (2000), and Soldier of Love (2010). Each album was remastered by the group at London's Abbey Road Studios alongside mastering engineer Miles Showell and the band’s longtime co-producer Mike Pela.

A press release announcing the box set states that the This Far title “suggests that the band’s studio work may not yet be fully complete.” In 2018 Sade released the singles "The Big Unknown" (a contribution to the Steve McQueen movie Widows) and "Flower of the Universe" (taken from Ava Duvernay's A Wrinkle In Time). Guitarist Matthewman hinted at the time that the group was working on a new album.
