'John ac Alun' release their first collection of new songs for 10 years

It's 10 years since John and Alun released their last album, and as the title suggests, this release has been hotly anticipated. The reason for this delay was partly to do with their desire to shape every aspect of the work, including the choice of songs, their interpretation and the type of production that would best suit each song.

The recording took place in Alun's own home in Tudweiliog, across a period of two years. Alun is also responsible for most of the arrangements on this record.
