In June 2021, Christina Scabbia spoke to Revolver magazine about the predicament of writing new music. "Everything we do in our regular lives enriches us and gives us something to contribute to our music," he said. “We also like to compose together, so Andrea and I do the lyrics and vocals, while Marco lays the foundations for the other musicians in the band. But we will do it together. We need to get into writing mode.” So because of the self-quarantine, I didn't like it, so I had to record [together], so I had to record it separately. Now that I'm a little happier, I'm starting to gather ideas."
On February 22, on the group's Instagram, they shared photos taken at the studio where the special project took place. On 9 May 2022, the band announced that they would host a one-day concert in Milan at the Fabrique on Saturday 15 October to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their third studio album, Comalies.
On July 15, 2022, the album name and tracklist were released. This album is not a re-recording of Comalies, but rather, the band "disbanding and moving on to 2022". The band released the first single from the album "Tight Rope XX" on 19 July 2022.
