Regina Spektor Performs ‘Prisoners’ For ‘Colbert’

Singer-songwriter Regina Spektor performed her song “Prisoners” on Tuesday’s at-home edition of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Spektor collaborated with tap dancer Caleb Teicher for the version featured on last night’s Colbert.

“When I did my solo piano tour, I revisited some of the older songs. While dreaming up fun things for the Broadway shows I invited Caleb, who is brilliant at using tap as percussion, to check out ‘Prisoners,’” Spektor said. “After the shows, we filmed the song at Roulette in Brooklyn, just to have a memory of that wonderful moment. Little did we know that being alone in a theater and on opposite sides of the stage would be where the world was heading. I await the day we can all dance and perform together- but for now I’m so glad to share this performance during a time I’ve been missing playing music for people.”

Regina Spektor originally released “Prisoners” on her 2002 album, Songs. Spektor and Teicher’s collaboration was filmed in 2019.
