Regina Spektor has unveiled the surreal new video for her track 'All The Rowboats' – scroll up to the top of the page and click to watch.

The nightmarish promo sees the singer-songwriter submerged in water, and also includes spooky, fragmented shots of her being bound by ropes and crushed by closing walls.

The track is taken from her new album 'What We Saw From The Cheap Seats', which will be released on May 12. Another song from the album, 'Don't Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)', was also made available online earlier this week (March 27) – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen. It was previously released on Spektor's 2002 album 'Songs' and has been re-recorded for her new LP.

Regina Spektor will play two UK shows in July. She will first play London's Royal Albert Hall on July 2, before moving onto Manchester's O2 Apollo on July 4.
