If you listen closely you can almost hear my child-like squeal of excitement. The catalyst for such arousal is the anticipation building towards the release of Regina Spektor's Far. The new album is her fifth (yes, fifth!) studio release and hits stores on June 23rd. Just to add fuel to the fire, here is a video of Regina performing her new song "Blue Lips" on Later.. With Jools Holland.
I was curious as to what direction Regina would be taking with her new material after the slight injection of VH1-friendly pop on her last album. But if "Blue Lips" is any indication, it's safe to say that there will still be plenty bare bones Regina on Far. Regina's beautiful voice/lyrics + Miraculous piano = Un-F'in-Believable. Very much looking forward to more.
