Tatiana releases Been a Fool on August 22nd, 2011 on Upside Records in the UK, and Sony in Europe.
Been a Fool was penned by and produced by Tim Hutton, who has written for Prodigy, Ian Brown, Groove Armada and Mutya Buena. Hutton also writes and produces for the legendary Trevor Horn. The track is taken from Tatiana’s debut international album Spider Web, available on iTunes and Sony.
Been A Fool’s dancefloor mixes are by Seamus Haji, a remixer who needs little introduction, and was responsible for key reworkings of Rihanna, Moby, Mika, Mariah Carey, Sugababes, Ting Tings and Craig David.
Tatiana Okupnik is a platinum-selling vocalist in her home country of Poland and is now based in London where she recently released her debut international single, Spider Web. In the UK, the track had its debut on the Chris Evans Breakfast Show on BBC Radio 2, was featured on BBC Radio 4’s Women’s Hour and topped the chart on Polish Radio London. Spider Web also had great support in Canada, US, and Australia (Joy FM). Spider Web received in excess of 175,000 YouTube hits, featured on key internet radio such as Gaydar and received support internationally on key blogs and sites. Both Been A Fool and Spider Web are taken from Tatiana’s debut international album Spider Web, available on iTunes.
Explains Tatiana, “Been A Fool is a track that’s all about emotion. Massive beats, Shirley Bassey-esque vocals and a big vocal make this the absolute key single from the album for me. We spent a lot of time looking for the right collaborators on this single, and we found them! I debuted the dance mix by Seamus Haji at Kapp Club in Tallinn Estonia during Baltic Pride last week and the place went insane. The Ash Howes mix is also just right for UK radio. It’s very, very cool, and I am hoping this is the track that will bring me a bigger UK audience. It’s all very well being famous in Europe, but I have enormous respect for the culture of UK pop, and to establish myself professionally in the UK is my absolute goal.”
The stunningly sexy video for Been a Fool is available to view now on www.tatianaofficial.com and You Tube. It was shot by award-winning director Steve Glashier, who has directed for Fatboy Slim, Juliette Lewis and key fashion clients. Creative Director was Miguel Dare of Givenchy and the clip was shot at Shoreditch uber-chic London’s Beach Blanket Babylon. It may or may not be the sexiest video shot in London this year.

“Working with Steve was superb,” explains Tatiana. “He totally got the theme of Been A Fool, of messed-up love, and what can happen in a club like Beach Blanket! I met Miguel, the Art Director while he was DJing at Bungalow 8 in London and knew he would be right. The look and feel of the video is exactly how I see modern clubbing in London. It’s a glamorous world of boys and girls and everything in between. It’s no wonder that London is attracting the best and brightest artists in every genre from Europe right now…”
