The band's drummer Vince Ely had left the band, leaving lead singer Richard Butler and bass player Tim Butler along with guitarist John Ashton to work as a trio. For this album, record producer Keith Forsey handled the majority of the drumming, with session musician Tommy Price playing the drums on two tracks.
The album includes the dance hit "Heartbeat" and the chart hits "Heaven" and "The Ghost in You". Despite substantial success internationally, "Heaven" was not released as a single in America. Instead, another track from the album, "Here Come Cowboys", was released and the video for it received some airplay on the then, very new and popular MTV network.
