09 Jul Regina Spektor Composes Theme Song For “Orange Is The New Black”
Regina Spektor has composed the theme song to a new Netflix original series entitled “Orange Is The New Black”. The theme song is “You’ve Got Time” and is now available.
The song, “You’ve Got Time,” will play in an edited version over the series’ opening title sequence, which features arresting images of the faces of female former prisoners.
Jenji Kohan, the series creator had this to say about Spektor:
“I listened to Regina’s albums obsessively while writing the series, so I immediately thought of her for our theme song. I love Regina and I’m so grateful she agreed to do it. I had total faith in her and she nailed it. I think she’s a genius.”
Spektor recalls meeting Jenji in New York:
“When we met in New York, Jenji painted such an exciting and clear picture of the series that I started to hear some ideas right away. Jenji has a way of putting so much humor and heart into her work that by the time I was sent a few episodes I was completely hooked on all the stories. It’s a unique and great series – and I’m so glad she invited me to be a part of it!”
Spektor is about to embark on a tour of European venues including headline festival appearances at England’s Secret Garden Party, Sweden’s Stockholm Music and Arts Festival, and Germany’s Haldern Pop Festival. Regina will also headline her own concert at historic Caesarea in Israel on August 24.
