Posted: April 14, 2009 in Sirens, What's Ed-G:

Regina Spektor breaks the silence, finally.

Spektor’s new album, Far, hits stores on June 23rd, and will coincide with a world tour.  Dates are TBD. The first single will be “Laughing With” ready for release at any minute – and by release, I mean a leak on YouTube.  Keep your eyes open…

Press release with a little track info below:






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, R.E.M.). 

Captivating audiences with songs that are distinctively her own, Begin to Hope
allowed Spektor to go from hypnotizing small crowds to selling out 3000 capacity
venues worldwide with what Rolling Stone praised as "one of the most intensely
joyful rock shows we've seen." Begin to Hope also spent five weeks in a row at
#1 on the Billboard new artists chart before moving to #20 on the Billboard Top
100 and selling one million copies worldwide (gold or platinum in seven

Spektor's ability to explore rich soundscapes and combine them with her
evocative and intricately structured melodies and lyrics has grown tremendously
on Far. From the gripping lyrics of the first single Laughing With to the
intoxicating beat of The Calculation, from the multilayered vocal work on Blue
Lips to the rocking Eet, Far is the work of a talented, daring and important

Spektor will tour the world beginning in June. Tour dates to be announced soon.
