After terminating the first run of King Crimson in 1974, Fripp decamped in 1977 to the Hell's Kitchen neighborhood of New York City. As the New York of that day erupted with the forms of punk rock and what would come to be known as new wave, Fripp dived in, playing and recording with Blondie and the Roche sisters, absorbing the sounds of the active downtown music scene. He envisioned a new approach, and incorporated elements of these NYC experiences into his current palette, including the tape loop techniques he had developed in tandem with Brian Eno, dubbed "Frippertronics."

A jarring work, alternately discordant and serene, Exposure mixes traditional song structure with found objects, lacerating vocals, and off-kilter guitar work-outs to present a unique sonic experience, a bracing encapsulation of urban angst leavened with wry humor. Lyrics were mostly provided by Joanna Walton, a poet acquaintance of Fripp's tragically killed on Pan Am Flight 103. Pan Am Flight 103 was Pan American World Airways third daily scheduled transatlantic flight from Londons Heathrow International Airport to New Yorks John F. Kennedy International Airport. ...

Originally, Fripp had intended the album as the third part of a simultaneous trilogy recorded 1977 to 1978 including the debut solo album by Daryl Hall, Sacred Songs, and Peter Gabriel's second album, both of which Fripp contributed to and produced. Hall's management and label resisted the project, fearing that the kind of music they heard from Fripp and Hall in collaboration would be damaging to Hall's commercial appeal, insisting as well that Exposure be equally credited to Hall, initially Fripp's main vocalist. Fripp instead used only two Hall vocals on his album, substituting Peter Hammill and Terre Roche in various places; ergo the trilogy did not appear quite as intended, although all three albums eventually appeared in the marketplace. The songs "Urban Landscape" and "I May Not Have Had Enough of Me But I've Had Enough of You" appear on the Hall album as well, the latter entitled "NYCNY" with different lyrics written by Hall. The Gabriel record also features a version of "Exposure." "Here Comes the Flood" appears in an orchestral arrangement on Gabriel's first album.
