Moura became interested in collaborating with Jorge Fernando again. Together they developed a number of songs for the album, but the basis of the development was Filipe Larsen's demos. Moura had a number of songs written down for the album, which amazed Fernando. They had intensive discussions among themselves before recording a song. Later, Moura recalled that most of the songs on the album were autobiographical in many respects. However, according to her this was not intentional and happened while she was in the process of developing the album.

Five singles were released from the album, "Leva-me aos Fados", "Caso Arrumado", "Não é um fado Normal", "Rumo ao Sul" and "Como uma Núvem no Céu". Ana Moura performed a few concerts in Europe after the album's release, to promote its sales. The album has been very well received by critics and it has also been a big commercial success. [1]
