Like in her previous album, Tikaram collaborated with the London Session Orchestra for the string sections of her songs. Tikaram recorded a dark electronic cover of ABBA's little-known minor hit "The Day Before You Came", one of the few times she has covered another artist's songs.
The album received mixed reviews on release, and was not a big seller, charting at #69 in the UK. The album was released in continental Europe and Japan, but it was not a big seller. Unlike her previous records, this album was never released in the USA. After promotion of this album ended, Tikaram was let go of Mother records and retired from the music scene for several years.
