In 2012 did the band release the critically acclaimed single "Dansa som en fjäril (Dance like a Butterfly)" / "Inte ett ord till (Not a word more)" which will also be on the album. A new single with the song "Matilda" and B-side "Fattiga och vackra flickor (Poor and beautiful girls)" was released on April 19 and went right into the iTunes list with a high ranking.
