Recording took place at VOX Recording Studios in Athens, Greece, in 2008-2009. Composed and produced primarily by Dimitris Kontopoulos, the album's sound differs from past albums featuring a more European sounding of songs and an album built on fresh material.

The second single from the album "A Dal'she" (А дальше…; And more...) was released in 2009 and peaked at number 1 in Ukraine while it reached the top 10 in Russia. The music video for the song was shot in India, and features an Indian theme.
