WHAT IS “ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK”?
One asset of the Netflix original series “is Regina Spektor’s original theme song ‘You’ve Got Time,’ which she wrote exclusively for the show’s creator, Jenji Kohan (who also created Weeds). This isn’t the first time the two have collaborated: Spektor covered the Weeds theme song ‘Little Boxes,’ and a few of her other tracks were used in the show. However, this was the first time that Spektor had ever written a theme song from scratch.” (Rolling Stone)
