Regina Spektor Visits ‘The Colbert Report’
Nobody conducts interviews quite like Stephen Colbert, so when Regina Spektor stopped by the set of ‘The Colbert Report’ last night (June 7), she probably knew she was in for a little something different. Still, she probably couldn’t have guessed that Colbert would ask her “How do I know you’re not a spy?”
Jokes about her Russian heritage aside, Spektor’s ‘Colbert Report’ appearance yielded plenty of enjoyment for fans, including some discussion of the meaning behind the title of her new album, ‘What We Saw from the Cheap Seats,’ as well as performances of ‘Small Town Moon’ and ‘Ballad of a Politician.’ All three segments are embedded below.
Released on May 29, ‘What We Saw from the Cheap Seats’ has enjoyed strong sales, debuting at an impressive No. 3 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums chart; it’s also earned an assortment of positive reviews from various outlets (including Diffuser.fm, where it walked away with a nearly perfect score).
See what all the fuss is about below — and let’s all give Spektor a hand for her ability to keep up with Colbert during another of his famously faux-combative interview segments.
