    Over the summer, Regina Spektor released an alternate “chamber” version of “You’ve Got Time” in honor of the final season of Orange is the New Black. The singer-songwriter is contributing yet again to a visual project, this time the forthcoming drama Bombshell, which chronicles the takedown of Fox News’ Roger Ailes.

    Spektor’s soundtrack offering is called “One Little Soldier” and features lyrics addressing the downfall of the disgraced CEO,

    “In the game the little soldiers get maneuvered/ If you lose a few, you easily move on/ Bet you never thought your soldiers could undo ya, now did you?/ But to tip the score it sometimes takes just one.”

    “As we watched this amazing film on director Jay Roach’s couch — we all had an incredibly moving experience,” Spektor noted in a statement. She continued,

    “The film was fun, nuanced, and smart. The scenes and feelings stayed with me for days. They wouldn’t leave me until I sat down and wrote a song. A few days later we were already recording it, and by the the 2nd day of recording I was back in Jay’s house as he listened to what his film so directly inspired. It felt like the quickest and most wonderful way to make art!”
