Previous album required a reclusion of nine months. For this one, Nilda organizes all the opposite, in rue des Martyrs, at two-hundred meters of his Montmartre adress. Voluntarily, the doors of the studio remain open, letting the street get into songs. Nilda does not stop his tours and goes to Latin America with his band to make concerts.

Some arrangements are signed Christian Fradin (De Londres), Gilles Coquard (Marie-Madeleine, Sinfanaï retu), Juan-Manuel Fernández (Ma Ville, Comprends-tu), Luis Rigou (Ne me fais pas mal). However, most of the songs result from a collective creation where the musicians of any horizons come to deposit their inspiration: a  gospel choir (On t'a appris), a lute and loops ( La Gitana), the flamenco guitars (Ultime rêve de l'amour)...

At its release, the album embarrasses because of its no references with the precedent.

This record is dedicated to the life, to the drafts,

to the streets which rise and come down,

to the untraceable peace, to the murmured words,

to you, he or she, to the rain on her roof...

This record is not dedicated to the death,

to the air-conditioning, to the avenues,

to the war against everything, to the shouts,

To us, you or they,

to the mud under your shoes.
