Regina Spektor has composed the theme song for the Netflix Original Series, Orange Is the New Black. The song, "You've Got Time," plays in an edited version over the series' eye-catching opening title sequence, which features arresting images of the faces of female former prisoners.
The hour-long series from creator and executive producer Jenji Kohan stars Taylor Schilling, and is based on the popular memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman, who spent time behind bars.
Spektor's full-length version of the series theme song is available on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify and other major digital music service providers. Orange Is the New Black premieres on Thursday, July 11 at 12:01 AM PDT in all territories where Netflix is available: U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, Latin America, Brazil and the Nordics.
Said series creator and executive producer Kohan, "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."
Said Spektor, "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!"
