Regina Spektor to release new album 'Remember Us To Life'

Regina Spektor returns with her seventh album Remember Us To Life out September 30
 
The new LP marks Spektor’s first outing since 2012’s What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Album Chart and her Grammy-nominated theme song ‘You’ve Got Time’ for the hit Netflix show Orange Is The New Black. Recently it was announced that Spektor has recorded George Harrison’s classic ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’ for the animated film Kubo and The Two Strings, to be released on August 19th.
 
Remember Us To Life is composed entirely of all new songs recently written by Spektor, a change from past albums when she would record songs written throughout her career. Spektor gave birth to her first child in 2014 and she spent considerable time writing during and after her pregnancy. Says Spektor “I made more art and felt more inspired than I had in a long time.”
 
Spektor recorded with producer Leo Abrahams (David Byrne/Brian Eno, Frightened Rabbit, Paolo Nutini) in Los Angeles at The Village Studios. Says Spektor of Abrahams, “he is such a kind and talented musician. And person! I felt very grateful to work with him.” 
 
Born in the Soviet Union, Spektor began studying classical piano when she was six. Her family emigrated in 1989, landing in New York City, where she continued her classical training. She began writing pop songs in her late teens and made her recorded debut in 2001 with the self-released 11:11. Spektor’s commercial breakthrough came in 2006 on her fourth LP, Begin To Hope. The gold-certified album included the singles ‘On the Radio,’ ‘Better’ and ‘Fidelity’. Spektor’s fifth album, Far released in 2009, and sixth album, What We Saw From The Cheap Seats released in 2012, both debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
