Regina Spektor is set to release her eighth studio album, Home, before and after, and she released its first single “Becoming All Alone,” today. This is Spektor’s first new album since 2016.
Recorded in upstate New York, Spektor’s newest work is out June 24 via Warner Records and says that it is the “most quintessentially ‘New York'” record she has made in years. Home, before and after was produced by John Congleton and co-produced by Spektor.
“Becoming All Alone” is an all-too-fitting ode to the inevitable loneliness a massive city can render. “And I just wanna ride / But this whole world / It makes me car sick,” Spektor seers over the accompanying strings and sharp drums. But when the song closes, leaving only Spektor’s voice and piano keys, she warmly pleads for time to stay on her side.
As early support for the album, Spektor will perform a homecoming show on April 11 at New York’s Carnegie Hall. She’ll further the support at a few more scheduled shows in Salt Lake City, Beaver Creek, and Denver.
Home, before and after follows Spektor’s 2016 LP, Remember Us To Life. Back in 2019, the artist made her Vegas debut with a successful five-night Broadway residency at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre.
