Regina Spektor continues to mix up her sound with the release of “Small Bill$,” the newest cut from her first full-length LP in over four years, Remember Us to Life.
With thumping R&B drums and swag-infused delivery from Spektor, “Small Bill$” marks a distinct turn for the Moscow native’s traditional sound, layering mystical chants and brooding orchestral splashes with the singer’s signature skills on the piano.
The track is the second single taken from Spektor’s seventh studio album, Remember Us to Life, following the release of July’s bubbly comeback track, “Bleeding Heart,” her first major, original release since contributing “You’ve Got Time” to Netflix’s Orange Is the New Black.
“There are a lot of fun things to me [about this record], but of course I’m in it, and now the excitement is going to be seeing it out into the world,” Spektor previously told EW about the creation of the album, which she says incorporates an eclectic mix of string arrangements and a full orchestra. “I feel like I’ve been working on it forever, but I’m ready for it to be in somebody’s ears, like I’m singing to them.”
“Small Bill$” appears on Spektor’s new album, Remember Us to Life, which is set for release on Sept. 30. The album is available to pre-order now on iTunes.
