Regina Spektor – Far
Regina Spektor is about to put out a new record called Far, and as you might expect, she’s coming to town to play a big show at the Beacon Theatre on June 17, 2009. Tickets for that show are on presale now, (Password: HEREGINA) and they go on sale to the general public starting May 15 at noon. Here’s a little more info about the new album:
Sire Records and Regina Spektor are very proud to announce the release of FAR; the highly anticipated follow up to Spektor’s gold album BEGIN TO HOPE. Set for a June 23rd release, FAR continues to reveal new layers in Spektor’s songwriting as she pursues the next level in her inimitable musical style. With her uninhibited imagination and her hands on approach in the studio, FAR not only succeeds with 13 impressive and accessible tracks, but it spotlights Spektor’s remarkable gift to craft intelligent and refreshingly honest odes to life. Four exceptional producers collaborated with Spektor on FAR: Jeff Lynne (ELO, The Traveling Wilburys), Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Eminem), David Kahne (Paul McCartney, The Strokes) and Garret “Jacknife” Lee (Weezer, REM).
All currently known Regina Spektor tour dates after the jump (I’m assuming more US dates will be announced shortly).
