"Şaka (10+1)" (commonly known simply as "Şaka" and "10+1"), [ [http://stardium.com.tr/v3/default.asp Stardium Müzik Yapım, Reklam, Tanıtım, Organizasyon A.Ş ] ] is the fourth studio album by Turkish girl group Hepsi, expected to be released in May 2008. The album is the groups third album so far, and is the follow up from their 2006 album "Hepsi 2", which spawned the hit singles "Kalpsizsin" and "Aşk Sakızı".

Album title

The albums title "Şaka (10+1)", in English means "Joke (10+1)". The "(10+1)" section of the title refers to the fact that the album consists of 11 tracks. 10 of which are famous covers with an addition of 1 new track. The group entitled the album "Joke", as all the cover songs were written by the previous artist with deep meaningful reason, however the group stated that the tracks were songs that they grew up listening to as a child, so the same meaning of the song isn't intended and isn't to be taken so seriously.

The groups debut album was entitled "Bir", translating to One, and their previous album was named "Hepsi 2" which made fans speculate that the new album would be entitled "Hepsi 3" or "Üç". In pseudo-binary, "10+1" can be interpreted as 3.

History

The album was initially was supposed to be released in the summer of 2007, however the album was not released and no information regarding the album was given. In November 2007 "Hepsi" confirmed in an interview with the press, that they were in the process of picking songs to record, and were going to beging recording the tracks at the end of December 2007.

tyle

"Şaka (10+1)" is noticeably different to other released from the group, this is due to the album mainly being cover songs. The groups first album "Bir" was mostly praised for the up tempo songs which featured on the album whereas their second album was praised for the lyrics. However with most of the songs on "Şaka (10+1)" being covers the album is noticeable more vocally challenged then the other releases. The vocals are more diverse and vocal roles are shared equally, then the previous releases. The album, however isn't dull and an imatation of the previous artists efforts, but is revived not only by vocals, but with add new up tempo beats. This adds a sense of edge to the album, especially as the album features rap vocals from group member Eren, which fits right into the songs. In an interview with the Turkish music magazine Blue Jean; band leader Gülçin said their style went more pop with the addition of rock and electronic music elements, unlike their first two albums Bir and Hepsi 2, since they are more influenced from R&B and dance-pop.
