The album marks Paparizou's first studio album release with EMI Greece, following her departure from longtime label Sony Music Greece.

Recording and production

Elena Paparizou began studio recordings around July 2012 in Athens. Giannis Doxas, Paparizou's former A&R, actively promoted the project through his personal social networking sites, despite his employment at Paparizou's former label. Songwriters and producers of the new album are Meth (Mihalis Kouinelis/Stavento), Giorgos Papadopoulos, Akis Petrou, Jimmy Jansson, Fredrik Sonefors, Bobby Ljunggren, Dimitris Kontopoulos, Nikos Antypas, Nikos Moraitis, Miltos Ioannidis, Gabriel Russel (Slik Beats), Giorgos Pilianidis, O. Holter, Jakke Erixson, Kristofer Östergren, Youla Georgiou, Nahle Ahlstedt and Giannis Doxas. The liner notes indicate that the album is collectively produced by "The A Team".

In mid of April 2013, Elena Paparizou's official Facebook page posted two photos from the album's photo shoot, which see Paparizou in a garden wearing a white button-down shirt, short light blue denim shorts, male black cowboy boots and a white sun hat.

Release and promotion

The album was released on 3 June 2013.

The album is administered by Universal International Music, a Netherlands-based office of Universal Music Group, per Paparizou's latest multi-territory deal. As a result, the album also carries the "Universal Music" logo. EMI Music Greece is Universal Music Group's sole major label operation in Greece (as of April 2013), therefore Paparizou is officially represented by EMI Music Greece in the Greek market.

It's the first Paparizou album to be at the Top10 of the official Greek album chart for 11 straight weeks.[ citation needed ]
