Tori Amos is back! and is in the Night Of Hunters (Aka New Tori Amos Album)

Well I wasn't gonna do this, because I don't think anyone cares, but Fiona Apple gets her own thread, so I'm doing it.

TORI AMOS MAKES HER DEUTSCHE GRAMMOPHON DEBUT WITH NIGHT OF HUNTERS

NEW ALBUM SET FOR SEPTEMBER 2011 RELEASE

21ST CENTURY SONG CYCLE INSPIRED BY CLASSICAL MUSIC THEMES SPANNING OVER 400 YEARS

May 5, 2011 – (New York, NY) – Tori Amos marks her debut album for Deutsche Grammophon, the world’s most celebrated classical music record label with Night of Hunters, set for release this September. The iconic, platinum-selling singer-songwriter continues her legacy of ground-breaking recordings with this 21st century song cycle inspired by select classical pieces spanning the last 400 years.

With Night of Hunters, Amos carries on the classical tradition of variations on a theme: taking inspiration from classical forms to create a bold new work while paying tribute to the mastery of the original compositions.

On Night of Hunters, which she wrote and produced, Amos comments “I have used the structure of a classical song cycle to tell an ongoing, modern story. The protagonist is a woman who finds herself in the dying embers of a relationship. In the course of one night she goes through an initiation of sorts that leads her to reinvent herself allowing the listener to follow her on a journey to explore complex musical and emotional subject matter.”
“One of the main themes explored on this album is the hunter and the hunted and how both exist within us,” the singer explains.

The release of Night of Hunters will be supported by a tour in Europe and the U.S. starting in Helsinki, Finland on September 28th.

With more than 12 million albums sold and multiple Grammy nominations, Tori Amos is one of the most successful and influential artists of her generation. A pioneer across multiple platforms, she was the first major label artist to offer a single for download, has had her songs turned into graphic novels, and has produced pioneering videos throughout her career. She is renowned for her passionate and broad fan-base, her critically and commercially successful tours, and her ever evolving live show. Ms. Amos is also a noted humanitarian and co-founder of RAINN (Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network), which is the United States’ largest anti-sexual assault organization.

At least we can expect lots of Piano is this one, hopefully. For the moment I'm semi excited about the album, but about to combust about a tour.

I was thinking she may have come back in pog form. A new album is way less exciting.

I didn't think I'd get excited about any new material after Tori's last album, but I think that the classical thing sounds pretty interesting so I'll allow some cautious optimism.

And yeah another tour would be awesome

Huh, this sounds rather nifty. So I guess I'll be buying yet another Tori album after being disappointed for the last umpteen CDs of hers.

In my defense, the previous thread was helped by the album title

Wow, Tori's going minimalist Unless each track is 7 minutes or something.

I really hope she got better at editing her own albums.

Man, I forgot all about this. It's even managed somehow not to be on my exhaustive list of albums I want to hear from this year

At least it's 14 tracks instead of like 24. They're probably longer.

From the description I assume this is going to be God-awful.

The plot of this album sounds like something from a shitty DI list.
