At the end of 1971, the album We'd Like to Teach The World to Sing was released in the US, this was basically the same as the New Colours LP but with the title track I'd Like to Teach The World to Sing replacing Peter's Move Me Lord. This is the only original New Seeker album which has so far been reproduced as a CD.

As the US release of this title was a close relation to the New Colours album, the UK version had much more in common with the US Circles album.  By the time We'd Like to Teach the World to Sing was released in Britain, the New Seekers had performed all six of the short-listed songs for the 1972 Eurovision Song Contest and three: Beg, Steal or Borrow, One By One and Songs of Praise were included on this album, the remaining three were included on the budget priced Look What They've Done to My Song, Ma which was also released in 1972.

A second “Coke” song, The World I Wish For You, was also listed on this album and two tracks penned by the group, Peter's very popular: I Can Say You're Beautiful and a favourite by Marty Kristian: Mystic Queen.
