Release Notes
Released in the summer of 2017 after months of digital teasing, the pre-release buzz generated record breaking accumulative digital and physical sales of over 300,000 copies in three days.

With album photography by Yiğit Eken - the guy who took over concert photography duty from long-term Tarkan photographer Sedat Mehder - the album of fourteen original tracks, titled as Tarkan's 10th studio release, sees the artist once again tweak the formulas and motifs that have made him enduring: Old and new, East and West, body and soul marry as Turkish pop star royalty, with long-time producer Ozan Çolakoğlu, help Tarkan bring nineties pop nostalgia up to date.

Tarkan's apparent longing for the golden heydey of Turkish pop is felt by the triumphant trio of Ümit Sayın, who worked on Tarkan's 1994 studio album A-acayipsin, late nineties collaborator Murat Matthew Erdem and newbie Tarkan collab, 90s pop composer Serdar (İzzet) Özdoğan. Erdem's tag team with newcomer Ayça Z. Aydın (Miya) brings the much missed heydey of the 90s into the present.

In a recording where no track is a musical footnote, the album sees the second collaboration with Aysel Gürel in a Tarkan release since their successful posthumous pairing seven years ago, and continued collaborations with poet Günay Çoban and female composer Gülşah Tütüncü.

Also noted, the 2017 musical offering showcases the lyrical skills of old favourites Sezen Aksu and Nazan Öncel. Öncel last appeared on Tarkan's 2003 album Dudu, while the artist's musical partnership with both Aksu and Öncel for this release makes it a personal first for the singer.
