Born in Russia, pianist and singer Regina Spektor released her first album,11:11, in 2001. Her career really started to take off with her fourth record, 2006's Begin to Hope, which featured the hit "Fidelity." Spektor has continued to enjoy critical and commercial success with such songs as 2013's "You've Got Time," which is the theme for the hit series Orange Is the New Black. Spektor earned a Grammy nod for the track.
After self-releasing her first three records and gaining popularity in New York City's independent music scenes, particularly the anti-folk scene centered on New York City's East Village, Spektor signed with Sire Records in 2004 where she began achieving greater mainstream recognition. After giving her third album a major label re-release, Sire released her fourth album, Begin to Hope which would go on to achieve Gold certification. Her following two albums, Far and What We Saw from the Cheap Seats, each debuted at number 3 on the Billboard 200.
Regina announced her seventh album, "Remember Us to Life", set to be released on September 30, 2016. The first single, "Bleeding Heart", was released July 22, 2016.
