With an album title inspired by the Franz Kafka classic ''The Metamorphosis,'' Otto's new album follows suit, mingling rhythms, textures, words and emotions on an album rich in orchestrations and new sonic creations. ''This album is more independent and more mature. It comes from a concrete change that happened inside me. This album is a tale I found in my soul,'' says Otto.
Backed by a stellar band, including co-producer Pupillo on drums, Dengue on bass and Catatau on guitar, Otto seamlessly blends an intoxicating mix of tropicalia, samba, folk, rock, reggae and pop, all layered with rich story lines of deep emotions and reflections. ''It's like it is my first album,'' says Otto.
The album also features special guest vocalists, Grammy winner Julieta Venegas and CéU.
The CD digipak includes a 12-panel insert with photographs of an art installation created for this album by Tunga, a world renowned conceptual artist.
