How long must we dream of a new Regina Spektor album until it lands from the moon? Just a couple more months now! Regina Spektor has announced her seventh album, Remember Us to Life – her first since 2012’s What We Saw From the Cheap Seats – will arrive on September 30. And with it comes a new song to make you forget all about her divisive Orange Is the New Black theme (which, admit it, has grown on you). “Bleeding Heart” is classic Regina Spektor whimsy and a sonic roller coaster, hitting peaks of bubbly pop, cruising through a sudden burst of drum-heavy rock, until it eventually slows down for some effective piano balladry. According to a press release, this is Regina’s first album of entirely new songs — her previous albums were assortments of old and new songs — written during and after she was pregnant with her first child in 2014, a life-changing event she says gave her renewed inspiration. Say it with us now: awwww!
