Time for a flashback to the early 2000’s… remember when t.A.T.u. made worldwide headlines because they were the first lesbian couple to break through the mainstream music scene with their controversial hit ‘All The Things She Said‘… annnnnd it was later revealed they were told to act that way by their record label and well, their career kinda died off shortly after that.
Well, out of nowhere, Lena Scissorhands of Infected Rain has teamed up with Nika Comet of Chase The Comet and the metal maidens have given the former controversial song a metal facelift for their fans… and those of us who hadn’t heard of the above-mentioned bands before. It’s alright… I say that after giving it three back to back spins though so who knows you might dig it too (especially if you were part of the crew doing that Wall of Death during The Veronicas‘ set at Good Things Festival last year).
On the new song, Lena says:
“To the constantly stressed and thoughtful world, we decided to give some love. This song was very powerful when released by t.A.T.u. in 2002 and still is till this day. We had so much fun recording and filming for this cover song but, more so, we wanted to remind the world to remember to love. Love is the solution to so many problems. Make love, be loved and love with all your heart.”
“When Alex suggested to do a cover on the most world-renowned song by a Russian artist, I knew right away it should be a collab with no one else but my friend Lena from INFECTED RAIN. We are both coming from the USSR and speak Russian, so it seems very symbolic. With its message nowadays, this song is as current as ever and we wanted to proclaim the right of every human being to love and be loved cause love is love.”
