Six singles, including one promotional single, were released from it. The female vocals are from Annika Ljungberg, who left the band in 1996 due to a disagreement with the other band members, after the release of the fifth single, "Rolling Home", to start a solo career.
The album was a commercial success, including the hit dance single "Cotton Eye Joe". The album was re-titled Cotton Eye Joe (Sex & Violins) for the US release, presumably due to the original album cover, although a modified version was briefly released in the US (minus the image of a person urinating in a cup) prior to the retitling. Track number 8 is also known as "Harder Than Your Husband".
