Ferman Akgül: "This album is a very personal experience for me. I have worked on it for the last 1,5 years writing songs and composing the music. It tells my story. The album mixes acoustic and electronic instruments, piano arrangements and electronic beats creating a new "alternative pop" sound. It is such an honour to be able to share with everyone and I hope you will like it."

The album is released by EMI-Universal Turkey in collaboration with Ferman's own label 06 Records. 11 strong songs will be released for pre-sale on Itunes on the 10th of March.

The album has two surprises in store for fans; legendary Turkish producer and drummer Iskender Paydaş makes an appearance on drums on the song "Düş Sırtında" and Ferman's band member from maNga play the album's only rock song "Bana Gel".

Ferman's first two singles "İstemem Söz Sevmeni" and "Dırdır" featuring famous French football player, Pascal Nouma,  both topped the hit lists and  garnered 10 millions of views on Youtube.
