For a special live concert at Le Poisson Rouge in New York, Regina Spektor stripped down the richly orchestrated songs on What We Saw From the Cheap Seats, joined only by an additional keyboardist, a cellist and a drummer.

Regina Spektor’s first new studio album in three years, What We Saw From the Cheap Seats finds her scattering in several directions without losing sight of the sweet melodies that make her so accessible.
Lazy Sunday evening. Put on the Regina Spektor RSD 7 incher. Odd thing about it, it’s not 45rpm. It’s 33.3. I’m sure they had to do it that way to get 4 songs on it.
