The album has nine songs, and that’s a number that follows my life journey and always runs through everything I live and do. Tesla considered
that the number nine is the key to the universe, and maybe even these nine songs unlock some doors behind which new worlds, people, feelings are hidden just as music does ”, says Je Veux.
