He added, “when the pandemic hit we decided to lay some of it down. It’s been a huge stress reliever and meditative experience for me, hope it can be the same for you. Checking in with ourselves and taking care of our mental health is so important, now more than ever.“
Last week, he announced about the album, meanwhile, the album is featuring 12 tracks with the likes of Lunice, Good Times Ahead, Rhye, and Mikky Ekko, with each of the track titles given a roman numeral corresponding to its track number.

“Awake up to the racial problems that don’t wait for a pandemic to slow down and in return protests and riots carried on as a last resort in search of some kind of change. Some kind of realization made us feel normal. I think it was a reaction to all the anxiety that we had to deal with this year. 2020 was fucked.” Diplo said while announced the album.
