Making of The Album/ Pre ProductionEdit

On Friday, June 17, 2011 Katina's single "Never Forget" premiered on the Mexican radio station FMTU 103-7 in Monterrey, Mexico.[1] On Monday, August 1, 2011, the singer revealed the trailer the music video. On August 2 the official video was leaked on Perez Hilton's blog[2] On Friday, August 5, 2011, Katina officially released her music video for "Never Forget"[3] and released the song on iTunes as a single, which also includes her song "Stay".

Katina and her band appeared on Rawsession, where she performed original acoustic versions of songs and included "Never Forget".[4] All videos were released officially via YouTube[5] and eight months later, the songs were release in the EP "RAWsession 07-14-11".

On 19 September 2011, Katina released a new song, "Waiting", while being interviewed by Echo of Moscow Radio.[6] On December 9, 2011, Katina released a new song, "Keep On Breathing" via Kroogi, which was used as a fund-raising song for helping Japanese children who have been suffering from the earthquake and tsunami.[7]

During a video conference with her fans on the 13th December, Katina was asked by a fan for information on when her album would be released, to which she replied: "I also would like to know the answer to this question [laughs]... I am trying to find a label, but they don't want me, for some reason..." Katina's connection to fans went down at this point and the remaining comments made by her were lost.

Since then Katina has released several songs including "Waiting", "Lost In This Dance", and "Keep On Breathing", and has performed several songs live such as "World", "Just A Day", "So Not Cool" (The Beast), and "IRS" in both English and Russian.

Never Forget also known as "Never Forget You" is the lead single by Russian singer-songwriter Lena Katina's debut studio album This Is Who I Am. The song marks the Ending of the band T.A.T.u. and is a tribute to her former band member Julia Volkova. The song also marks the beginning of Lena's Solo Career. It was produced by Sven Martin and Erik Lidbom. It is a Pop-rock track, driven by electric guitars and keyboard. "Never Forget" had positive feedback, claiming number one in MTV Russia.[8] A remixes EP was released on March 12, 2012 by Dave Audé, on his label Audacious Records, seven months after the single release. It includes remixes from Audé, Loud Manners, Sharooz and Jeremy Word and has charted on US Hot Dance Club Play, and topped the chart for one week.[9] The song reached number one in MTV’s "Russian Top 10 - Year in review" chart.[10][11] The song failed to enter the top 100 airplay charts in Russia, peaking at number 244.[12]
