Track Review | Regina Spektor, ‘Black and White’
Singer/songwriter Regina Spektor delivers the third-straight exceptional single from her forthcoming album, Remember Us to Life.
After a hiatus, singer/songwriter, and pianist Regina Spektor announced her return to music via September 30 album, Remember Us to Life. Spektor released two singles – “Bleeding Heart” and “Small Bill$” – prior to her most recent single, “Black and White.” “Black and White” maintains the consistency that Spektor has exhibited as of yet.
“Black and White” opens with piano, followed abruptly with Spektor’s vocals. In effect, the song features very little intro. Regardless, Spektor sounds beautiful, delivering clear, pitch-perfect vocals. Her upper register – showcased on the chorus – sounds effortless. The vocal production is stunning overall, particularly on the chorus. Throughout its course, lovely instrumentation is incorporated, adding to the coolness and smooth flow of the record. The strings in particular are gorgeous.
All in all, “Black and White” is another fantastic single from Regina Spektor. She’s yet to miss, setting up forthcoming album Remember Us to Life as a truly special effort.
