Lisa Stansfield is an establised singer, but this is her first album produced by Trevor Horn, part of the ZTT revival of 2004. We see many familiar session musicians here, including Palmer, Pierce, Creme, Muhoberac, Cottle (who has also worked with Bill Bruford's Earthworks), Harvin, Thomas, Robinson, Jardim, Sidwell, Dudley, Ingman, Wright. Note also the involvement of 90125 engineer and former Art of Noise member Gary Langan and Magnification producer Tim Weidner.

The first single from the album was the double A-side 'Easier/Treat Me Like a Woman'; tracks: "Easier" (replacing an earlier plan of a remix of "Treat Me Like a Woman" by Taz Mattar), "Treat Me Like a Woman" (album version), "Big Thing" (new version produced by Ian Devaney). At the time of writing, the second single is planned to be 'If I Hadn't Got You', due early 2005. (HP, 13 Nov 04)
