Okay, so we've heard (and loved) three tracks from Regina Spektor's new album What We Saw From The Cheap Seats (out May 29), so picking up the deluxe edition is kind of a no brainer, right? The special fancy version of the album features a new version of "Call Them Brothers", a song original written and recorded by Regina and Only Son's Jack Dishel that originally appeared on the latter band’s second album Searchlight.
A new music video for the reworked version of "Call Them Brothers" (directed by James Holland) made its way online this afternoon. Check it out below.
Haven't heard the original, but this version sounds fantastic—love the doubled harmonies, the plucked violins and weepy cellos. It all matches wonderfully with James Holland's footage of Jack and Regina and her own home super-8 movie footage. Makes a nice contrast with the high concept art school silliness of the "All The Rowboats" video, don't you think? (See below)
