Russian fake-lesbian duo t.A.T.u. reunited for a performance at the Sochi Olympics opening ceremony, then announced plans to stage a full-on comeback with a tour and new music on the way.

It’s a brooding blast of Euro-pop, with the ladies singing in Russian, and the chorus is a tasteful crescendo of cascading synths. Alas, there’s also a brostep breakdown with Russian rapper Ligalize that sounds instantly dated, but otherwise, the single is a tantalizing taste of what could have been.
