Exclusive Video: Regina Spektor Talks New Disc, Coming 'Sci-Fi' Musical

Eric Helton, Matthew Murphy

Regina Spektor recently visited Rolling Stone’s New York offices to talk about her tours with the Strokes and the Kings of Leon (and what she’s heard of the new Strokes album) and the "almost sci-fi" musical based on Sleeping Beauty that she’s currently writing (she compares working on it to making smoothies).

More seriously, she discusses how her new album-slash-film, Live in London, is dedicated to Daniel Cho, her late cellist, who drowned last summer while they were on tour.
