Listen to t.A.T.u.’s “A Simple Motion,” The Unreleased Track from ‘200 km/h In The Wrong Lane’
Next week, Cherrytree Records and Universal Russia will be releasing the 10 Year Anniversary Edition of t.A.T.u‘s debut record, 200 km/h In The Wrong Lane. And to help celebrate the re-release, I interviewed the girls.
But that’s not all.
Included in the re-release–along with two new remixes (including one by Fernando Garibay)–is a brand new, never-before-heard track: “A Simple Motion.” The long-awaited song is the English version of their Russian track “Prostye Dvizheniya,” and as Lena revealed during the interview, it’s a ballad version.
The track was co-produced by Martin “Cherry Cherry Boom Boom” Kierszenbaum and Robert Orton, who went on to mix “Just Dance” and “Poker Face” for Gaga, as well as “Good Time” by Owl City and Carly Rae Jepsen.
Now, for the first time ever, MuuMuse is proud to Excluusively premiere the full version of “A Simple Motion.”
Drifting along mournful strings and a solemn piano melody, the English version is a devastating rendition that puts their lush vocals at the forefront. “A simple motion over and over,” the girls cry out on repeat–well, over and over. It’s gorgeous.
Listen below, and enjoy!
200 km/h In The Wrong Lane was originally released on December 10, 2002. The 10th Anniversary Edition will be released on Nov. 12 internationally, and Nov. 19 in the U.S. (iTunes) (Pre-order on Amazon)
