Juanes' album was recorded at New World Center and produced by MTV Tr3s and Juan Luis Guerra.
The work features collaborations with veteran Spanish singer Joaquin Sabina and Guerra.
Juanes has earned good reviews for the album.
"Instead you see him up close and quiet, pouring himself into the songs. Without having to capture a giant arena, he can focus on the music in a whole different way — and we can see and hear him without the rock star gleam," wrote music critic Jordan Levin for the Miami Herald.
