"Lily" is the first taster of the seven-track joint album, and is accompanied by a Mika Taanila-directed video that sees Richard Dawson challenging Steve Davis to a game of snooker.

Dawson says of the collaborative album title, "The word 'henki' roughly translates as 'spirit'. It's a very rich word, supple in its meaning in the same way as the Geordie 'canny'; difficult to pin down."

Circle and Dawson first connected via Twitter, and after Dawson joined Circle for their 2019 Sideways Festival set in Helsinki, they started sharing demos, and eventually came together to record in Pori, Finland. Henki was recorded across multiple visits, and the album was finished remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
