|Buffy Sainte-Marie chronology|
The album includes both new material and contemporary re-recordings of some of her older songs. The title track is a cover of Alabama 3's song "Power in the Blood", from their 2002 album Power in the Blood.
In a review of the album for NPR, critic Ann Powers wrote that "those who know her mostly by reputation as a standout of the early '60s folk revival will be delighted to discover an artist who's more Bjork than Baez, more Kate Bush than Laurel Canyon. Sainte-Marie is a risk-taker, always chasing new sounds, and a plain talker when it comes to love and politics."
Sainte-Marie won the Americana Music Award for Free Speech at their 2015 ceremony.
At the Juno Awards of 2016, the album won both Aboriginal Album of the Year and Contemporary Roots Album of the Year, and Sainte-Marie was nominated for Songwriter of the Year for "Farm in the Middle of Nowhere", "Ke Sakihitin Awasis (I Love You Baby)" and "Love Charms (Mojo Bijoux)".
