The first high-definition release from the acclaimed singer/songwriter is coming in November.

According to Regina Spektor's website, Warner Music is prepping 'Regina Spektor: Live in London' for Blu-ray on November 22.

Captured mainly at London’s famed Hammersmith Apollo Theatre, LIVE IN LONDON features 23 remarkable performances that span Spektor’s brilliant catalog of music, including three new songs that have only been performed live. LIVE IN LONDON was recorded during Regina’s UK tour in support of latest album, far, which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200.

For the first time, fans can see Regina up close as she performs fan favorites like Us, Fidelity, Samson and Eet, along with backstage footage, inside peaks at sound check and more. LIVE IN LONDON is a captivating 64-minute concert film directed by Adria Petty.

An artist praised for her remarkable originality, inspired storytelling and enthralling performances, Rolling Stone raves Spektor “put on one of the most intensely joyful rock shows we’ve seen all year.” The Philadelphia Inquirer adds, “Everything she did was greeted with thunderous applause … the audience could not get enough. Perhaps what was most remarkable about Regina’s performance, aside from hearing Spektor’s gorgeous vocals in person, was her ability to enrapture the crowd … Spektor’s passion, vitality and sheer musical talent transformed the Electric Factory into a world of intimacy.” The Boston Globe simply says, “multitalented Spektor is capable of anything and it shows on stage.”

LIVE IN LONDON is dedicated to Regina’s cellist and band leader Daniel Cho, who tragically passed away this summer.
