Coen Janssen comments: "Yes! It finally happened!! We recorded our new album with a full symphonic orchestra!!! Of course this has been a life-long dream of ours and this time it was the next logical step to take to enhance our sound. So we spend 3 awesome days in the beautiful city of Prague to record with the well-known City of Prague Symphonic Orchestra, and boy are you in for a treat!!! I am sure the orchestra adds a new layer and depth to our sound and I am beyond excited for everyone to hear it!!’"
