If you’ve been paying attention to the Sochi Olympics, duo t.A.T.u. reunited for a performance and had their track “Not Gonna Get Us” played during the march of the athletes.

The group officially disbanded in 2011, but the games resulted in renewed interest in the two, and now, t.A.T.u. plan to put out new music. This week, they posted the following Facebook update: “You’ve been waiting 6 years and now it’s time! This Friday, 14th February, t.A.T.u. will present their brand new single!”

With the exception of the release date, there’s not much known about the track. The group has a history of recording in either Russian or English, with their biggest hit, 200 km/hr in the Wrong Lane, released in both languages. The 2002 album generated popular single “All The Things She Said” and earned two IFPI Europe platinum awards in both languages.

While t.A.T.u.’s popularity was mostly concentrated in the early aughts, they continued to release albums throughout the decade, including two more in English and two more in Russian. Their last English-language release was Waste Management, an independent album in 2009. As their first away from Interscope, Waste Management involved a different group producers and turned out to be their least commercially successful, peaking at No. 92 on the Billboard 200 and selling just around 1,000 copies in the U.S.

What do you think about t.A.T.u. putting out new music? Should the Olympics performance have been just a one-time deal?
