Regina Spektor debuts the track ‘Loveology’, a much beloved and previously unreleased song which will be featured on her forthcoming album, ‘Home, before and after’. The album is set to be released on June 24th on Warner Records and features her recently released songs ‘Becoming All Alone’ and ‘Up The Mountain’.
Regina Spektor debuted ‘Loveology’ in 2019 on ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers’ ahead of her sold-out five-night Broadway residency.
She says, “With ‘Loveology,’ I wrote it and then played it once or twice live. Sometimes I’ll have a song that I’m really glad exists, but I can’t record it because every time I try, it just doesn’t feel right coming out of my mouth. But for whatever reason both ‘Loveology’ and ‘Raindrops’ felt so right this time and I’m so glad I was finally able to put them on a record.”
‘Home, before and after’ is Regina Spektor’s most diverse and sonically adventurous collection of songs yet. Recorded in upstate New York – produced by John Congleton and co-produced by Spektor – the album is Spektor at her most inspired, and was heralded by ‘Becoming All Alone’, a surrealist ballad that swells with arrangements and comes alive in the listener’s head.
During the summer of 2019 Regina Spektor completed a successful five-night residency at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, marking her debut on the Great White Way. The Daily Beast called the run “both whimsical and thunderous,” with Gothamist saying Spektor “delights on Broadway with a fun, zany show.”
Spektor’s previous album, 2016’s ‘Remember Us To Life’, received extensive critical praise from the likes of NPR, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, People and many more. Her subsequent UK tour included a London show at the Eventim Apollo, which prompted The Guardian to state, “All hail a songwriter of substance… she’s a cult artist, but it’s a cult big enough to fill the Apollo.”
The Grammy-nominated Russian-Jewish-American singer, songwriter and pianist first achieved commercial success with the RIAA Gold-certified breakthrough ‘Begin To Hope’, which included the singles ‘Fidelity’, ‘On The Radio’, ‘Better’ and ‘Samson’. Spektor’s fifth and sixth albums ‘Far’ (2009) and ‘What We Saw From The Cheap Seats’ (2012) both debuted at #3 on the Billboard album chart. She has performed at The White House as well as on Broadway and Saturday Night Live, and has contributed to many projects spanning film, television, and music including ‘The Hamilton Mixtape’.
Regina Spektor is also synonymous with New York City, resulting in receiving her own sign on the Bronx Walk of Fame and Mayor Bill de Blasio proclaiming June 11th 2019 to be Regina Spektor Day.
Regina Spektor will follow her upcoming summer shows with an autumn US headline tour which commences in Chicago. Please see here for a full list of dates.
