Background[edit]

After her last performance on her worldwide "Otra Cosa Tour" Julieta announced a break to begin recording her new studio album. She stated in an article with the Mexican newspaper Milenio that her new album will be recorded from home so she can play the dual role of recording artist and mother.[5] After a nine-month hiatus from performing, the "European Tour July 2012" was announced on July 4, 2012 with scheduled stops in France, several cities in Spain and Germany. Upon returning after the tour to Mexico City in August, Julieta continued recording her album and posted its progress with photos and videos on her official website as well as her Facebook fan page.[6][7] On October 8, 2012, she performed a series of concerts for Colombia where she spoke to the press about the new album which will be produced by herself and producer Yamil Rezc.[8] On October 16, 2012 Julieta announced on Twitter, "I have the title for the album! It's called Los Momentos ... and the first single is called Tuve para dar".[2]

Promotion[edit]

On January 18–20, 2013, Julieta Venegas performed at the Festival de Olmué in Chile. On March 5, 2013 she visited Volkshaus Zurich in Zurich, Switzerland to promote the album.[9]
