The basic instrument set remains the same, Drekoty still consists of vocals, keyboards and percussion. This time they have been recorded live in order to show the energy and joy of performing together. A long guest list extends the basic sounds in unexpected ways. The album features Antoni Gralak, Kasia Kolbowska, Rapahel Rogiński, Paweł Szpura and Mikołaj Trzaska.
The album was released on 2nd February by Thin Man Records.
