The much-anticipated new studio album from Regina Spektor, WHAT WE SAW FROM THE CHEAP SEATS, is set for release on 25 May 2012. The album reunites Spektor with production partner Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Fiona Apple, Dr. Dre) and is her first album of new material since 2009’s FAR.
WHAT WE SAW FROM THE CHEAP SEATS has launched with the first single All The Rowboats which is at radio now. Spektor will tour the US with Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers this autumn performing new material from the album.
WHAT WE SAW FROM THE CHEAP SEATS was recorded over an eight week period in Los Angeles with Spektor writing each of the 11 tracks on the album. Most of the songs were recorded live with Spektor on piano and vocals, while additional instrumentation was added to these original takes. Of working with Spektor, Elizondo says “Regina Spektor is that rare artist that continues to surprise. Just when you think you have her figured out, she knocks you out with something completely different. It’s that spirit that drives this record. Each song takes you on a journey that only Regina is capable of providing. She has truly outdone herself.”
Spektor studied classical piano and garnered a loyal live following in New York before self- releasing two albums. Her breakthrough album SOVIET KITSCH was released in 2004 followed by BEGIN TO HOPE in 2006. The album included worldwide fan favourite ‘Fidelity’ and is certified gold in the U.S and platinum in Australia. Spektor followed up with FAR (2009) and LIVE FROM LONDON (2010), which was recorded at the Hammersmith Apollo Theatre.
