British superstar Sting along with Richard Carpenter of The Carpenter helped out on the newest offering from the Russian pop duo, t.A.T.u. The two collaborated for t.A.T.u's sophomore album, "Dangerous and Moving," which comes out in the United States via Interscope Oct. 11.
In the 12-track set Sting played bass on "Friend or Foe," while Carpenter arranged and conducted the string parts for "Gomenasai." The album's first single, "All About Us," hits dance clubs this month and will be sent to Top 40 radio in October. Meanwhile, the "All the Things She Said" hit-makers are celebrating the birth of a new member of their extended family, in which singer Julia Volkova recently had a baby with her girlfriend.
