The much-anticipated new studio album from Regina Spektor, What We Saw From The Cheap Seats (iTunes pre-order), is set for release on Sire/Warner Bros. Records on May 29. The album reunites Spektor with production partner Mike Elizondo (Eminem, Fiona Apple, Dr. Dre) and is her first album of new material since 2009’s far. What We Saw From The Cheap Seats was launched with the first listen track “All The Rowboats” and followed with the single “Don’t Leave Me (Ne Me Quitte Pas)”. The album digital deluxe pre-order is available and the video for “All The Rowboats” will receive a worldwide premiere on YouTube and The Warner Sound on March 29. Spektor will also release an exclusive 7” of two Russian cover songs, “The Prayer Of François Villon (Molitva)” and “Old Jacket (Stariy Pidjak),” for Record Store Day on April 21. Spektor will tour with Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers this spring performing new material from the album; See dates below.

What We Saw From The Cheap Seats was recorded over an eight-week period this past summer in Los Angeles. Spektor wrote each of the 11 tracks on the album. She arrived at the session with a collection of new compositions, but others were pulled from earlier periods. She and Elizondo fleshed out instrumentation and sought to make each of the songs stand alone sonically. Most of the songs were recorded live with Spektor on piano and vocals, while additional instrumentation was added to these original takes. Of working with Spektor, Elizondo says “Regina Spektor is that rare artist that continues to surprise. Just when you think you have her figured out, she knocks you out with something completely different. It’s that spirit that drives this record. Each song takes you on a journey that only Regina is capable of providing. She has truly outdone herself.”

Spektor studied classical piano and garnered a loyal live following in New York before self- releasing two albums. Her breakthrough album Soviet Kitsch was released by Sire Records in 2004 followed by Begin to Hope in 2006. The album included worldwide fan favorites “Fidelity,” “Samson,” “On The Radio” and “Better” and is certified gold in the U.S. Spektor followed up with far (2009) and Live from London (2010), which was recorded at the Hammersmith Apollo Theater during the far tour.

The band also announces three shows kicking off at School Night at Bardot in Los Angeles, CA on August 29th along with two shows at Pearl Jam 20 Festival on September 3rd and 4th in Alpine Valley, WI.

EP002 was created in Los Angeles and outside London. GRAMMY winners Harrison and Hicks were both instrumental in the recording process including the producing, engineering and mixing the project. Featured in the collective spirit of thenewno2, the EP features guest appearances with RZA, Crisis, Sir Eyes, and Regina Spektor.

Known for his prolific typography in his own trademark colors, Eine reached international fame when David Cameron presented one of his works to President Obama as a gift on his first official state visit.

The EP comes in the wake of the band’s 2008 critically acclaimed debut, You Are Here. After wrapping their national tour Harrison focused on his front-man side project, Fistful of Mercy featuring Harrison, Ben Harper and Joseph Arthur. Their debut was released in October 2010 and was named “One of the Best Side Projects of 2010” by NPR.
