Following the release of Spektor’s digital download single All The Rowboats back in February and ahead of two massive UK headline shows at the Royal Albert Hall and O2 Manchester Apollo, New York multi-intrumentalist and acclaimed singer-songwriter Regina Spektor is gearing up for the release of the second single to be taken from her 6th studio album, What We Saw From The Cheapseats which is released on May 28th.
Don’t Leave Me takes us on a journey through the streets of Spektor’s homecity of the Big Apple in kind of the same that Lily Allen did for London with LDN, though this time without the mention of filth, granny-bashing and crackwhores.
What we found slightly confusing about Don’t Leave Me however is that this track is not new. In fact, the song is a revisited version of a song Spektor wrote and recorded, originally called Ne Me Quitte Pas, for her 2002 sophomore studio album, Songs. Though it is not an original track for Spektor this can be forgiven as the cover of her own penning is given a fresher and more up to date second wind and is the ideal step into a successful and busy 2012 for Spektor.
