Regina Spektor releases new single “All the Rowboats”

This week, singer-songwriter Regina Spektor released a new single off her up-coming called “All the Rowboats.” The track manages to sound like traditional Regina and cutting edge all at the same time. It begins with a dramatic electronia-esque fade in and a pounding drum machine beat. But then the recognizably elegant Regina Spektor piano comes in to ground the song. Overall, “All the Rowboats” is pretty dark. It feels like journey through a haunted art museum. Regina sings, “Masterpieces serving maximum sentences / It’s their own fault for being timeless.”

The track is the first taste of Regina’s new album entitled What We Saw from the Cheap Seats. No word yet on a release date. Until then, check out this live set from 2009, courtesy of NPR.
