Säkert! was also featured on a compilation album where Swedish artists made their own versions of now deceased classic Swedish singer Cornelis Vreeswijk songs. She sang the song Generalens visa

“Jag har läst så många artistbiografier och konstnärsbiografier. Det jag märker är att sångerna och konstverken skapas av krossade hjärtan, inte av de som vill tacka sina fruar för att de stått o lagat mat i femton år. Då tänkte jag att vem skulle jag vilja tillägna en låt till? Jag valde att skriva en låt om min kompis Fredrik” -Annika vid konsert i Norrköping där de framförde “Fredrik”.
