Regina Spektor unveils new song 'Small Town Moon'
Track from forthcoming album 'What We Saw From The Cheap Seats'
The track is the third to be taken from 'What We Saw From The Cheap Seats, after 'All The Rowboats' and 'Don't Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)' – which originally appeared on her 2002 album 'Songs'. The album has been produced by Avenged Sevenfold/Maroon 5 man Mike Elizondo and is the follow-up to her 2009 fifth album 'Far'.
Speaking to NME earlier this month, the singer revealed that some of the songs included on the album are almost 10 years old.
She said: "I wrote 'Open' when I was still living at my parents' house, so that's maybe 2003 or 2004. There's a bunch of songs that are older, but there are songs like 'Firewood' that were written more recently. '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."
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. 'What We Saw From The Cheap Seats' is out on May 12.
The tracklisting for 'What We Saw From The Cheap Seats' is as follows:
'Small Town Moon'
'Don't Leave Me (Ne Me Quitter Pas)'
'All The Rowboats'
'Ballad Of A Politician'
'Call Them Brothers'
