Regina Spektor released her new album, Remember Us to Life, back in late September via Warner Bros. Now she has shared a video for “Bleeding Heart.” It mixes footage of Spektor performing the song as an adult in various soundstage settings with old photos and videos of her as a little girl, including footage of a childhood piano recital. The childhood photos were taken by her father when they still lived in the Soviet Union. Jack Dishel directed the video, which you can watch below via NPR (who premiered it). Also Spektor will be performing in this Thursday’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, which will be broadcast on NBC.

Spektor had this to say about the video to NPR: “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. 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.”

Remember Us to Life is Spektor’s seventh album and the follow-up to 2012’s What We Saw From the Cheap Seats. It features all new songs written specifically for the album, as opposed to previous releases where she cherry picked songs written throughout her career. In 2014 Spektor gave birth to her first child and much of the album was written during and after her pregnancy. “I made more art and felt more inspired than I had in a long time,” she said in a previous press release. The album was recorded with producer Leo Abrahams (David Byrne/Brian Eno, Frightened Rabbit) in Los Angeles at The Village Studios.
