Regina Spektor has unveiled the routing for “Loveology,” a North American headline tour that kicks off Oct. 9 at the Chicago Theater. The 11-day fall run takes its name from her new single, a previously unreleased fan favorite that will be included on her new album.
“Loveology” is out now on streaming platforms. The Russian-Jewish-American singer, songwriter and pianist debuted the tune nationally on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” in 2019 ahead of her five-night Broadway residency at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. That year she got her own sign on the Bronx Walk of Fame as well as “Regina Spektor Day,” (June 11, 2019) proclaimed by Mayor Bill DeBlasio.
“With ‘Loveology,’ I wrote it and then played it once or twice live,” Spektor says. “Sometimes I’ll have a song that I’m really glad exists, but I can’t record it because every time I try, it just doesn’t feel right coming out of my mouth. But for whatever reason both ‘Loveology’ and ‘Raindrops’ felt so right this time and I’m so glad I was finally able to put them on a record.”
Home, before and after is due out June 24 on Warner Records and marks the follow-up to Spektor’s acclaimed 2016 album, Remember Us To Life. The new album – which was produced by John Congleton and co-produced by Spektor – is described as her “most diverse and sonically adventurous collection of songs yet.”
Previously released songs from the LP include “Becoming All Alone” and “Up The Mountain.” NPR’s Bob Boilen praised “Up The Mountain” as “the most striking song I’ve heard in 2022,” while the New York Times declared that the song is “mystical and earthy, moving from tolling piano to implacable beat, with strings and horns ganging up.”
Stops on Spektor’s fall tour include Massey Hall in Toronto; Warner Theatre in Washington, D.C.; Tabernacle in Atlanta; Ryman Auditorium in Nashville; The Warfield in San Francisco and Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles.
A presale begins June 8, with the general onsale starting June 10.
Ahead of the tour Spektor has a handful of summer headline dates along with gigs supporting Norah Jones and a July 10 appearance at Red Rocks Amphitheatre with The Avett Brothers.
Box office reports submitted to Pollstar for Spektor include an Aug. 22, 2018, show at The Theatre At Ace Hotel in Los Angeles that sold 1,491 tickets and grossed $77,581.
