Kina Grannis posted a cover of ‘The Call’ by Regina Spektor on her YouTube channel. Afterwards, the singer songwriter commented, “I hadn’t heard of that song until recently, someone in the last post requested it, so thank you. I searched it, and I love Regina, but I never heard the song and it’s so pretty.”
“So I’ve been getting a lot of requests to do another tutorial video,” Kina said, “and teach you how to play one of my songs on guitar. Instead of picking a random song, I wanna know what song you guys actually want to learn. So if you go to my blog today at kinagrannis.com/blog, I put up a poll so you can vote on the song you want me to do. Hopefully I’ll get to that soon and then we can all play it together.”

I’ve been kind of waiting for like 8 million years to make this album. That’s not entirely true, but the last album I put out was like 3 years ago from my garage, and it’s time that I make a real one. It’s pretty crazy. I think for most of November I’ll be in the studio 6 days a week for many, many hours.”
