It’s hard to believe, but at age 32 Regina Spektor is set to release her sixth studio album and first since 2009. Known for her smooth blending of indie rock and piano ballads, the newly released singles from Spektor’s upcoming album What We Saw From The Cheap Seats see Spektor taking her sound to new places.
The tracks “All The Rowboats” and “Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)” have an upbeat hip hop rhythm not normally associated with Spektor. Nonetheless her voice and piano skills seamlessly flow together beautifully with the rhythm showcasing her progression as a musician. On “Small Town Moon”, Spektor slows down the tempo by returning to her quintessential indie sound.
From the singles that have been released thus far, Spektor’s album is sure to appeal to both new and old fans alike. Her evolution as an artist is apparent and is something that leaves many looking forward to the release of the new disc. What We Saw From The Cheap Seats is available on May 29th via Sire Records.
