At the time of these recordings, Belgian electronic pop/trip hop band Hooverphonic had no permanent vocalist and decided to record the album with several guest vocalists, who all co-wrote their tunes. On the 2016 release you'll hear multiple voices, both male and female, with different timbres that give a unique character to each number. It's an eclectic palette adorned once again with the theme melancholic strings specific to Hooverphonic.

An international cast emerged, including the French Emilie Satt, Belgian Christa Jerome, Dutch Tjeerd Bomhof and the British Bird, Felix Howard and Litlo Tinz. In addition to a versatile company, they also recorded the tracks at different locations, like a small Norwegian island, a town near Milan, a London living room and their Belgian studio. The album includes the singles "Badaboum," "I Like The Way I Dance" and "Hiding In A Song."

"After years of having worked with one specific vote per album, we were really excited to work with different people. In the past we often attributed super cool numbers starting from a male voice. In most cases, they could be perfectly reworked in a female version, but this did not always work. So often gems remained unused. For us it is an obvious choice to use not only women's voices on this album. During our years in the box we got a lot of talented musicians and vocalists from and so grew the idea for the new record," said Alex Callier and Raymond Geerts.
