On this edition of All Songs Considered, we hear a stunning new song from Regina Spektor's upcoming album What We Saw From the Cheap Seats. We've also got Radiohead guitarist Jonny Greenwood, who joins Polish avant-garde composer Krzysztof Penderecki for a new collection of strange and beautiful classical pieces. Plus, listen for punk-inspired rock from Mind Spiders, a gorgeous new album from Cowboy Junkies, joyful electronic pop from Kishi Bashi, a new solo project from Nick Zammuto (half of the now-defunct duo The Books) and Argentinian electronic artist Mati Zundel.
