This album was finally released in January 26, 1999, almost a year later than it was originally expected.
One of the reasons this album was delayed is because the songs that Cheryl had recorded were mostly sad songs about her divorce of about three years previously. When she started writing some newer songs, she went back into the studio and added some of those songs.
Some of the songs were recorded live, others are studio versions. The song "Potato" was recorded in Philadelphia at the Seaport Museum. I was in the audience. I wondered why Cheryl kept asking the audience if they wanted to try singing potato. It was because it would be on the album.
