Regina Spector Gives Another Sneak Peek to New Album with ‘Small Town Moon’
The release of Regina Spektor‘s new album ‘What We Saw from the Cheap Seats’ is still about a month away, and there’s nothing anyone can do about it — but Regina is making your wait a little easier by offering a few sneak peeks at the LP. She’s already released a pair of singles ‘Seats,’ and now you can hear a third track, ‘Small Town Moon,’ right here in the comfort of your own browser window.
As Regina told NME recently, she went back to her songwriting archives for material from the new album. “I wrote ‘Open’ when I was still living at my parents’ house, so that’s maybe 2003 or 2004,” she recalled. “‘All The Rowboats’ has been around since 2004 or 2005, ‘Patron Saint’ is quite old too. In my mind, they’re always in vague places.”
There’s nothing vague about the thoroughly poppy ‘Small Town Moon,’ which follows first and second singles ‘All The Rowboats’ and ‘Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas).’ Like the other tracks, ‘Moon’ bears the sonic stamp of Grammy-nominated producer Mike Elizondo, who’s worked with everyone from Avenged Sevenfold to Maroon 5 and Carrie Underwood. Regina will take the new album on the road across Europe this summer, tackling a tour itinerary that includes gigs at the Royal Albert Hall and O2 Apollo in Britain. She also has one U.S. date scheduled: an Aug. 14 gig in Los Angeles.
