And she almost gets squished to death, eee!
The Mistress of Melody Regina Spektor embarks on a nasty, nautical adventure in her new music video for All The Rowboats, the latest track off her upcoming album What We Saw from the Cheap Seats.
We loved the song when we debuted it back in February, and we can't wait to hear the rest of the album in May!
Check out the dark and ethereal romp through the deep blue (above).

It's been too long!
We've got the latest track from the incomparable Regina Spektor to share with you here, off her forth coming album What We Saw From the Cheap Seats.
It's just the kind of track you would expect from Regina: quirky, a little dark, and so well put together.
Have a listen to the video (above) to heat the new track, All The Rowboats!
And we like. It's different. It's soulful. It's what you'd expect from her.
There's a slew of amazing artists featured on the Boardwalk Empire Soundtrack, out the beginning of September. Lots of jazz and bluesy voices , including Regina Spektor, who sings a classic song made famous by Fanny Brice (and then Barbra Streisand in Funny Girl), My Man!
Have a listen to the video (above) to hear her version of the song.
You know, this is the third time we've heard a contemporary artist cover this song. All in different ways. There was Lea Michele, who performed it on Glee this past season and kept very closely to the Barbra version. Then, we found Lauren Ambrose performed a version of the song with her band, Lauren Ambrose and the Leisure Class. It's a lot more like Regina's, but we would say more brassy.
So, this begs the question….

The lovely and talented Regina Spektor is taking on a fantastic new endeavor!
The singer/songwriter is set to collaborate with playwright/director Tina Landau and lyricist Michael Korie on a new musical entitled Beauty.
Beauty is described as using "the 1812 Grimm fairy tale Sleeping Beauty as a jumping off point for a contemporary and hauntingly provocative story of beauty lost and beauty found."
With Regina attached to the project, we're sure it's going to be amazeballs!
Beauty is being aimed at Broadway for the 2011-2012 season, after an out-of-town run.
OMG! LOVE the full string section!!!!
