It was released in different editions, including the limited "Ultra Deluxe Edition".

A new studio album was originally scheduled for autumn 2018. The album was produced between 2017 and 2018. On 3 September 2018, Schiller announced officially the release of a new album and the rescheduling of the release date to spring 2019.[4] The name of the album "Morgenstund" and its cover artwork were announced and revealed on 14 September 2018 on Facebook and YouTube. Von Deylen described the production of the album with the words: "Ich freue mich sehr auf „Morgenstund". Selten hat mir die Arbeit an einem neuen Werk soviel Freude gemacht". (Translation: I'm really looking forward to "Morgenstund". Rarely, working on a new work has given me so much pleasure.)[5]

A first song from the album, "Morgenstund" with singer Nena,[6] was released with different remixes on Spotify on 22 February 2019.

The first music video of the album, "Universe", had its world premiere on 2 March 2019 on YouTube.[7] The song was released then also on Spotify. A third song, "Avalanche" with SCHWARZ, was released on 8 March 2019. A second music video, Das Goldene Tor with Yalda Abbasi, had its world premiere on 9 March 2019 on YouTube and was also put on Spotify.[8] On 20 March 2019, the music video of Berlin Tehran had its world premiere exclusively on the homepage of the German news magazine Stern.[9] The song "Berlin Tehran" was first live performed during Schillers concert tour through the Iran in 2018. The complete album with the music videos to Universe, Das Goldene Tor, Shangri La, New Day, and Berlin Tehran was released on 22 March 2019 in the German-speaking countries.
