The album features cover versions only, and will available as jewel case CD, limited edition digipak with an exclusive bonus track as well as a limited vinyl LP.

Vocalist Roberto Dimitri Liapakis commented: “This album is like a love letter to the music that accompanied so many of us, myself included, in the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s — and believe me, you have not heard the songs like this before! I’m also really excited to show you a new and different side of Mystic Prophecy!”
