Your Pop Alternative Source
October 2nd, 2012 - Los Angeles, California – In 2002, the unforgettable duo of Julia Volkova and Lena Katina – known to the entire world as t.A.T.u. – drove a dark-pop semi-truck through the musical landscape with their multi-platinum debut album “200 km/h in the Wrong Lane.” To commemorate the 10th year anniversary of this seminal pop album, Cherrytree Records and Universal Russia are issuing a special re-release of t.A.T.u’s “200 km/h in the Wrong Lane.” The album - which spawned the hits ‘All The Things She Said’ and ‘Not Gonna Get Us’ - was first released on December 10th, 2002.
t.A.T.u.’s irresistible first single, ‘All The Things She Said’ topped the charts around the globe and included a 4-week stint at number 1 in the UK. The album was produced by Trevor Horn (producer of Grace Jones, Frankie Goes to Hollywood, Seal), Martin “Cherry Cherry Boom Boom” Kierszenbaum (Cherrytree Records label head and producer of Lady Gaga, Far East Movement, Natalia Kills) and Robert Orton (mixer for Jennifer Lopez, Carly Rae Jepsen, Lana del Rey).
Following the original release of “200km/h in the Wrong Lane,” t.A.T.u. became the first-ever eastern European group to achieve platinum status in any language. To this day, t.A.T.u. remain Russia’s most successful musical export with over 6 million units sold and their “200 km/h in the Wrong Lane” debut album is still cited by music journalists as one of the best pop albums.
The “10th Year Anniversary Gold Edition will feature all new artwork, a never-before-released song from the 2002 sessions, “A Simple Motion,” a brand new remix of “All The Things She Said” from producer Fernando Garibay (Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Shakira), special remix in addition to newly-mastered songs.
