Regina Spektor's Far set for June release

New York songstress Regina Spektor is set to release the 13-track follow up to 2006's Begin To Hope early this summer. Her new album, Far, is slated to hit shelves on June 23 via Sire Records.

Spektor worked with four producers on the new album: Jeff Lynne (ELO, The Traveling Wilburys), Mike Elizondo (Dr. Dre, Eminem), David Kahne (Paul McCartney, The Strokes) and Garret "Jacknife" Lee (Weezer, REM).

While you wait for more album details to be released, check out University of Georgia a cappella group With Someone Else’s Money putting their spin on the Ben Folds/Spektor song "You Don't Know Me," which has been recorded for Folds' coming release Ben Folds Presents: University A Cappella!
