Jay Kay said the album with these words:
Tutto il disco è stato registrato dal vivo. Is’ un disco realizzato da una vera e propria band. L’ultimo album è stato fantastico, but everything has become a bit’ sterile. Questa volta siamo riusciti a catturare l’energia delle nostre esibizioni dal vivo.
The album was recorded mainly in Jay Kay's home studio in Buckinghamshire, all'Hook End Manor in Oxfordshire, and at Karma Studios in Thailand. The pieces have been written entirely by Jay Kay with the help of band members and will be produced by Jay with Charlie Russell and Brad Spence.
