200 MPH IN The Wrong Lane

Elegant string arrangement by Richard Carpenter

for t.A.T.u.'s recording of Gomenasai, the 6th track

"Yes, these best friends and musical partners are in lock-step solidarity with one another, which is exactly what the new album Dangerous and Moving is all about. Crafted with help various producers, Dangerous and Moving features collaborations and guest appearances from a handful of the pop worlds most legendary performers. Indeed, so estimable is t.A.T.u.s pop-cultural cache, than no less an artist than Sting plays bass on the Dave Stewart (The Eurythmics) co-penned track Friend or Foe. As well, the albums elegant string arrangements are provided by Richard Carpenter (one-half of legendary 70s orchestral-pop icons The Carpenters). Here you will find eleven powerful, passionate tracks dedicated to sharing personal truths and expressing a fearless love of life. Dangerous and Moving is an album filled with high-energy club tracks and sweeping ballads that will have old and new fans alike dancing, laughing, singing, and making love."

"Julia Volkova and Lena Katina are on the doorstep of fame again with the release of t.A.T.u.s follow-up CD entitled Dangerous and Moving.  As proven by the first single "All About Us", this new album takes the dance-pop sensibilities heard on t.A.T.u.s last album, and brings them to the next level."


Hal Leonard Music Publishers has put together a new sheet music collection with a "play along" cd.
