After four long years, Regina Spektor is back with her new album – Remember Us To Life – due for release on the 20th of September.
The record follows her 2012 release – What We Saw From The Cheap Seats – which reached #3 on the Billboard charts, as well as her Grammy-nominated track, You’ve Got Time, which features as the theme song for the Netflix Original show, Orange is the New Black. Remember Us To Life will be her seventh album and whilst it is sure to be full of the same talent-filled tracks as the previous six, this one will be slightly different. Whereas before, Regina’s albums were made up of tracks written throughout her career, this new LP will contain only brand new tracks that have been written in the past four years. This change stems from a rush of inspiration following her pregnancy and the birth of her child.
“I made more art and felt more inspired than I had in a long time.”
These new tracks were recorded with producer Leo Abraham – who has previously worked with acts such as Paolo Nutini and Frightened Rabbit – at The Village Studios in Los Angeles. Regina only has kind things to say about Abraham and I am beyond sure that their bond will translate seamlessly into these tracks with his influence only intensifying the unparalleled beauty that Regina Spektor continues to create.
“He is such a kind and talented musician. And person! I felt very grateful to work with him.”
With a classical upbringing, Regina has surpassed all expectations by flawlessly entering the pop world in 2001 with her first, self-released album: 11:11. Since then, she hasn’t looked back and her talent and fame has only increased. I genuinely think that with this album being written in such a defined period of time, it could be her most coherent sounding release yet. I am inconceivably stoked to be getting some new material and to have the opportunity to see what new inspirations will show themselves in the music. I feel as though this will be the most relevant and in-depth insight into the mind of Regina Spektor that we have ever had.
Fans who pre-order the standard or deluxe edition digital format of the album will receive downloads of 4 tracks, including the first single ‘Bleeding Heart’.
