BackgroundEdit

Norma is a conceptual album that tells the different stages of love, each song will tell part of a story of the relationship, all of them have a music video. The name Norma comes from the artist's first name (Norma Monserrat Bustamante Laferte), that she did not like but she used it to show that in her life love always follows the same "norma" (norm).[2]

Norma was recorded in a single session at Studio A of Capitol Studios in Los Angeles, California, on June 16, 2018. The recording was made in a single shot, without using the overdubbing technique of layers of audio, but all the instruments playing simultaneously to give the material the sensation of live recording. 13 musicians participated in this recording. The production of this album was in charge of Omar Rodríguez-López; the recording engineer was Bruce Botnick.[2][3][4]
