Regina Spektor Debuts 'One Little Soldier' From BOMBSHELL
Regina Spektor is debuting her new original song, "One Little Soldier," featured in the upcoming original motion picture Bombshell.
The film-starring Charlize Theron, Nicole Kidman, Margot Robbie and more of Hollywood's biggest stars-hits theaters in New York and Los Angeles on December 13 before opening wide on December 20.
"As we watched this amazing film on the director Jay Roach's couch- we all had an incredibly moving experience. The film was fun, nuanced and smart. The scenes and feelings stayed with me for days", Regina says of her experience with the film. "They wouldn't leave me until I sat down and wrote a song. A few days later we were already recording it, and by the the 2nd day of recording I was back in Jay's house as he listened to what his film so directly inspired. It felt like the quickest and most wonderful way to make art!"
This past summer, Spektor completed a successful five-night Broadway residency at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre, marking her debut on the Great White Way, which The Daily Beast called "both whimsical and thunderous," with Gothamist saying Spektor "delights on Broadway with a fun, zany show."
Spektor's most recent album, 2016's Remember Us To Life, has been the subject of extensive critical praise from the likes of NPR, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, People and many more.
Born in the Soviet Union, Spektor first saw commercial success with the gold-certified LP Begin to Hope which includes singles "On the Radio" and "Better," as well as "Fidelity" which climbed the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. Spektor's fifth album, Far (2009), and sixth album, What We Saw From the Cheap Seats (2012), both debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Involved in projects spanning music, theatre, TV and film, Spektor's work has appeared on the Hamilton Mixtape and Netflix's hit show "Orange Is The New Black."
