On the weight of high demand, Regina Spektor's new album is still in tiny fragments and will only be worked on late this year.
Just like a tradition, now that Regina Spektor has accumulated enough fame through "Begin to Hope" (2006), people start questioning about her next album. The Russian singer won't tell much and insists that everything's still in "tiny little things".
Regina as usual has written numerous pieces that she's not sure of making a record yet. Explaining the reason she said, "Because I have so much stuff that I've written, I always use some things from before and some things that I've just written and some new things that maybe nobody's heard. But I never really write for a record, so I have no idea exactly what it's going to be. It sort of just comes together into a little piece."
While confirming that the work will start this November, she comes up with a new video from "Begin to Hope" first. "I'm gonna make a video for my next single, 'Better,' " she said. "I re-recorded it, so it's a whole new track - it's fun to have a new take on something. As for the video, well, it's still a little bit mysterious - which makes it sound romantic. In other words, I'm not sure. But I have some really cool ideas." Up to this point she won't go to details for fear of bad luck. "So when it's done, it's done, and then I'll talk about it."
Meanwhile, the only studio work that she's done this year would that of John Lennon's tribute. She covers "Real Love", a song originally written and performed as a demo by John Lennon but reworked by The Beatles' remaining members in 1995. The song is included in the album "Instant Karma: The Campaign To Save Darfur" that was released on June 12.
