The date given for the album was September 2016. Meanwhile, the third single, Diamond Hard was published on July 27. In September, the project on PledgeMusic was closed and no information was given about the album. On October 4, with a video on YouTube, Kerli announced that it would have been pushed to early 2017, saying that most of the material was written and she was producing a lot of songs and writing the treatment for a new music video. She also announced her plans to release a special signed EP featuring three of the album's singles, remixes, and bonus content previously available through her PledgeMusic project. Everyone who preordered the album was eligible to receive the CD.[20] Then Kerli revealed that she would compete in Eesti Laul 2017, with the song Spirit Animal.[21] She reached the final and finished second in the competition.[22] On March 9, 2017, Kerli posted a video on Youtube saying that, since the competition was over, her priority would have been the album and its finishing, the artwork and some music videos.[23] On August 12, 2017, Kerli performed in an Estonian festival called Kuressaare Merepäevad, where she sung almost all of her singles.
