The album's closing track, "Married But Not to Each Other", was later released as a single after its inclusion on Lovers, Friends, & Strangers the next year.

, Taiwan
Taiwan
, and the Chinese diaspora overseas. Due to China's historical dominance of East Asian culture, many names used in Korea and Vietnam are adaptations of Chinese names, or have historical roots in Chinese, with appropriate adaptation to accommodate linguistic differences. Modern Chinese names consist of a surname known as XING (姓, xìng), which comes first and is usually but not always monosyllabic, followed by a personal name called MING (名, míng), which is nearly always mono- or disyllabic. Prior to the 20th century, educated Chinese also utilized a "courtesy name " or "style name" called ZI (字, zì) by which they were known among those outside their family and closest friends
