Three singles were officially released to radio stations to serve as promotion for the EP. The title track "Ti Theloune Ta Matia Sou" was the lead single, released 15 December 2001 alongside the EP. The song is a rock ballad featuring rock band Exis. It was followed by a remix "Ti Theloune Ta Matia Sou [Club Mix]" on 2 February 2001 that was also made into a music video. In producing the video, Sony Music used the Club Mix which was found to be more audience-friendly, in that it was upbeat and signature of music at that time period. Although the Club Mix, which was the work of remixer Dimitris Paizis did not feature the band Exis, the film clip and track became a hit on the charts and made many other appearances, including winning "Best Video Clip of The Year" at the 2002 Pop Corn Music Awards. The video was directed by one of songwriter Phoebus's main collaborators, Kostas Kapetanidis. It was shot in October 2000 and released shortly thereafter, showcasing Garbi in many different abstract scenes and theming. [4] The third single released as "Aspro I Mavro" on 30 March 2001. The song is a cover of the 1996 Algerian song "Harramt Ahebbak" and is a dance tsifteteli (adapted by Antonis Gounaris).
