As Agnetha was not an active recording artist at the time, the recording of the album came about in a round about way. "The project came about through a good friend of mine," she explains. "She called me up and told me that Jörgen Elofsson and Peter Nordahl wanted to play me some music. They came to my house and played me three songs and I thought, 'Oh my God, I have to do this'. It felt like a challenge." Ten tracks were recorded for the album, all of which were written or co-written by Jörgen Elofsson.


The lead single from the album is When You Really Loved Someone, which was released worldwide on 11 March 2013 as a digital download, with a CD single following on 15 April after demand from fans. A video clip for the song was filmed in late 2012, with Max Fowler and Camilla Rowling co-starring with Agnetha.

In Germany and Austria, the lead single was The One Who Loves You Now, also released on 11 March 2013.

The track "I Should've Followed You Home" is a duet, recorded with Gary Barlow of the very successful British group Take That. Both artists recorded their vocal parts separately, as Agnetha was on holiday at the time of Barlow's recording session. Nevertheless Agnetha stated, "I think our voices work so well together". The song had its radio premiere on 21 April on a Dutch radio station

"I Was A Flower" is a dramatic string-attached piano ballad, produced and performed in a theatrical way. On 22 April, the song was made available for download only through the British amazon.co.uk website.

"I Keep Them On the Floor Beside My Bed" is the first track Agnetha has written herself that has been released since I Won't Let You Go - the lead single from her 1985 album Eyes of a Woman - and its B-side, You're There". Agnetha commented, "Jorgen kept saying, 'You have to write a song for this record'. I hadn't written any music for a long, long time. But I sat at the piano, and suddenly it was there. A friend of mine said a lovely thing: 'It's in your spine. Even if you feel tired, when it's time, it will be there'."

Other tracks on the album include the contemplative "Bubble", a song that encapsulates Agnetha's attitude to fame, the rollercoaster disco ride of "Dance Your Pain Away", the sugar-rush pop of "Back On Your Radio", and the tender, piano-led "Past Forever".
