To the delight of her fans, Regina Spektor has announced the release of her new album Remember Us to Life, coming out on September 30. To preview the record, she gave us a taste with a track list of 11 new songs, plus the lead single "Bleeding Heart" (with Spotify streaming!) to tide us over until the fall.
This is the singer’s first album since 2012’s acclaimed What We Saw From the Cheap Seats, and this return with the first track is already sounding like the classic Regina sound we’ve come to love.
"Bleeding Heart," accompanied by the always-present piano notes from the artist, hits both slow and fast tempos. The infectious track is already stuck in our heads, with its repetitious chorus, and is reminiscent of Spektor’s now-iconic Orange Is the New Black theme song “You’ve Got Time.”
With lyrics like “Never never mind bleeding heart bleeding heart/Never never mind your bleeding heart,” the track is a surefire way to get you through the summer (and the autumn blues), especially if you’re in need of a pick-me-up love song. In other words, expect the melody to be stuck in your head for days.
