The recording of Parades took 18 months and featured more than 30 guest musicians, including a string quartet, a brass quintet and three separate choirs. Live-rooms and a church hall was used to gain ambience and real-life space in the recording. Darren Allison (My Bloody Valentine's ‘Loveless’, and Spiritualized’s ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’) and Efterklang’s Mads Brauer mixed the album. 

The highly detailed and lavish artwork is by Hvass&Hannibal. They also produced the video for ‘Mirador’ which features animations of the artwork.
