Regina Spektor has come far since her youth, spending her time learning the piano in the Soviet Union. Those memories are the focus of the singer-songwriter’s newest video for Remember Us to Life track “Bleeding Heart.”
Lead by her Spektor’s husband, Jack Dishel, the clip includes footage of the musician singing and dancing in front of an illustrated skyline with old videos and photos from her early years. Her black-and-white pieces came thanks to her father, who Spektor remembers fondly.
“Throughout my childhood I’d sometimes get tired of standing as [my father] took his light meter readings or asked me to play piano or pose,” Spektor said to NPR. “But now when I look back on every recorded moment, I’m just grateful. It took hard work and patience on his part — most of the photos were developed and printed by him in his darkroom in spare time from work.”
