"Stay The Night" was originally meant to be separate Maxi-CD release in 1998, but after many Eurodance bands decided to release Christmas songs,X-Tension have written and produced "It´s Christmas" in parallel. Because it was quite expensive to release physical CDs back then and group wanted the Christmas single out but did not have a B-side ,than added "Stay" as additional track. Unfortunately,this decision led to "Stay" not getting much attention, because the CD vanished after Christmas in the shelves. Since it was always one of our favourite tracks and did receive a great reception during our "Dancefloor On Ice" performance, project thought it´s a good idea to re-record it. "Stay The Night" is also one of the few songs (if not the only one) which actually feature singing during the rap parts. When project recorded the raps in the studio with a former rapper, he suddenly came to us and said: "I really love the raps,but I would also like to sing here and there." So we thought that we could just insert a few sing lines - and so he did both, the raps and male singing parts. After mixing the original version, we realized that the vocals were too thin, so our previous engineer and Thomas recorded additional vocals which are heard on "X-Tension - The Lost Tapes". In this 2015 remake, this singing is kept - but Lana record the additional parts.
The download EP includes "Stay The Night and the balearic "Days Of Summer Mix", ideal for the last balmy summer nights with it's relaxed groove and guitar sounds.
