Mother Love Bone signed to PolyGram subsidiary Polydor/Stardog in November 1988 and recorded their debut EP. As part of their contract, PolyGram also created the Stardog Record imprint exclusively for the band. In March 1989, the group issued its debut EP, Shine, becoming the first of the new crop of Seattle bands to have a release on a major label. The record sold well and rapidly increased the hype surrounding the band. John Book of AllMusic said the "record contributed to the buzz about the Seattle music scene."

In late 1989, the group returned to the studio (this time in Sausalito, California) to record its debut album, Apple. Despite some initial difficulties, the record was on time for its projected March 1990 release. Only days before Apple was slated to be released, however, frontman Andrew Wood passed away. The album would see release later that year on July 19, 1990. Kim Neely of Rolling Stone said that the album "succeeds where countless other hard rock albums have failed, capturing the essence of what made Zep immortal – dynamics, kids! – and giving it a unique Nineties spin."
