“‘I’ll be surprisingly good to you’ [is] a real star [the Evita] score, but never explored outside of the series and really stands on its own. The work of the incredible Mexican guitarist Eduardo Leon is particularly valuable on this track,” commented Day. “Since I was in Latin America anyway, I figured I might as well go to the source. He contributed to the diversity of sounds and styles on the album.”
Musical guests on the album include Grammy nominees Jane Monheit and Dave Koz. It is produced by Day and Alex Frank.
