ReleaseEdit

Recording took place at VOX Recording Studios in Athens, Greece, in 2008-2009. Composed and produced primarily by Dimitris Kontopoulos, the album's sound differs from past albums featuring a more European sounding of songs and an album built on fresh material.[1]

The debut single from the album, titled "Solntse" was released in December 2008. It peaked at number 1 in both Ukraine and Russia respectively. The album also includes an English version of the song titled "I'm Alive".

The second single from the album "A Dal'she" (А дальше…; And more...) was released in 2009 and peaked at number 1 in Ukraine while it reached the top 10 in Russia.[2] The music video for the song was shot in India, and features an Indian theme.[2]

On November 28, 2009, the title track "Solntse" won the "Best Song of the Year 2009" award at the "Zolotoi Grammofon" awards held Moscow, Russia.[3]
