The ideal situation for us is to work thoughtfully and painstakingly on the arrangement, play the song at concerts, fix something, change it, and only then carry the song to the studio. That is why we do not release albums every year, we just do not have time. After the release of the album “What kind of songs”, we picked up a new material for a long time, worked on it and at the end of 2017 realized that it was time to go to the studio. Work at the studio was from January to May. It is interesting that initially we did not plan to use guest musicians in the recordings, but then … In one song they called Dzhangir Daushvili to play for the shares, in the other four familiar vocalists, there is a banjo, there is a balalaika, children’s choir and so on … As a result it turned out that the album “Do you love you” is not only Otava Yo, but also our many friends. ”The album included nine tracks, among them well-known from the video clips“ Oh, Dusya, oh, Marusya ”and“ Sumetskaya ”, which became superhit on Youtube, collecting over 18 million views. Funny humorous songs – the card of Otava E – coexist on the album with monumental lyrical canvases, such as the 8-minute title track “Do you love?”.
