Free Stream :: Regina Spektor 'What We Saw From The Cheap Seats'
Fans of Regina Spektor have been waiting three long years for the follow-up to her most recent album Far - but that wait is over. What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, the sixth album from the New Yorker/Muscovite arrives with some significant buzz behind it.
What We Saw From The Cheap Seats was recorded over an eight week period this past summer in Los Angeles. Spektor wrote each of the 11 tracks on the album. She arrived at the session with a collection of new compositions, but others were pulled from earlier periods. She and Elizondo fleshed out instrumentation and sought to make each of the songs stand alone sonically. 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."
With the album set for a Friday 25th of May release, we've partnered up with Warner to bring you a free stream of the record! Do your ears a favour below.
