Regina Spektor shares new album details

Regina Spektor's "Remember Us To Life" set for release September 30th on Sire/Warner Bros

Regina Spektor will release her new full-length Remember Us To Life, on September 30 via Sire/Warner Bros. Records. Today, she has shared the lead-track “Bleeding Heart.” The new LP marks Spektor’s first outing since 2012’s What We Saw From The Cheap Seats. 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 19.

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. Spektor eventually studied composition at the Conservatory of Music at Purchase College where she graduated with honors. She began writing pop songs in her late teens and made her recorded debut in 2001 with the self-released 11:11, a collection of songs heavily influenced by jazz and blues.
