Dangerous And Moving is the second English-language album by t.A.T.u. The album was first released on October 5, 2005 in Japan then on October 10 in the UK, October 11 in North America, and in Europe and Latin America, on October 14. The album has sold more than 2 million copies worldwide.
Production on Dangerous And Moving spanned out from Los Angeles, to London, and Moscow. There were two notable recording sessions with the record's producer, Sergio Galoyan. The first was August 4–20, 2004 a recording session in Moscow with just Lena that produced songs like "Cosmos", "Sacrifice" (one demo ft. Claire Guy) and demos "All My Love", "I Know", "One Love" and "You". The second recording session was from January 17 - April 18, 2005 in Los Angeles with "Sacrifice", "Perfect Enemy" and the demo of "We Shout" titled "Reach Out" sung by Katina.
Other demo versions of the songs are available online, such as: "All About Us (performed by the Veronicas)", "Sacrifice (with both Yulia and Lena)", "Perfect Enemy (which is very different and recorded by Claire Guy)" and "Obezyanka Nol".
Although Sting, Dave Stewart, Richard Carpenter and The Veronicas did work on the album, they did not actually meet the girls for production. Sergio Galoyan became a liaison for the production. However, Richard Carpenter did meet the girls after the recording of the album at their video shoot for the single Friend or Foe. The video was shot on location at Bronson Cave in Hollywood, directed by James Cox, while the executive producer was Grant Cihlar for 1171 Production Group. According to the booklet, the album was recorded at 8 different recording studios. The album cover photography and design was made by their own music group TA Music.
