As Seen on TV: Regina Spektor on GMA

Here's RS singing the first single from her new album "Far". It's called "Laughing With". Sam Champion's gushy introduction is an amusing bonus. It's always interesting to see TV personalities who normally preside over less organic acts (Miley Cyrus comes to mind) marvel over the existence of something with a little more depth to it.

I've also located a really nice appearance of hers from an NPR show called Soundcheck that I heard in the car a few weeks ago. She does a number of tracks from the album live in-studio, discusses her mindset while writing the new album, and being a New Yorker among other things. Yes, it's radio and not television, but a good tellyphile is a well-rounded tellyphile.
