She told Bonang that with this album she enjoyed the creative process. "It was such a joy to just sit there and create this music. Now that it's all put together and it's about to go out I'm like 'oh my God'..."

She addded: "I got sleepless nights, I dream about... it's hectic, it's stressful but I'm very, very proud of it. I think, I really think it's my best work."

She also described Born Free as massive. "It's still very much Lira, but it's like leaps. It's just grown in bounds. It feels epic, it feels bold, it feels strong, it feels assertive, definitive, it feels like I'm just ready for something massive and I really am. I just didn't know how it was gonna come out."
