Tori Amos is back! And so are her old songs! (Gold Dust)

From Tori's facebook page:


Really exciting news! Tori is releasing a new album entitled ‘Gold Dust’ set for release in October.
Tori has re-imagined a personally hand-picked collection of songs spanning her entire catalogue for her thirteenth studio album. It features re-workings of songs in orchestral settings, which Tori produced in the studio with the Metropole Orchestra conducted by Jules Buckley with arrangements by John Philip Shenale

Tori will also be doing a very limited number of orchestral shows in the US and Europe around the release.


Not sure how I feel about this. I think it's either going to be amazing or useless.

Has it ever been more obvious how influenced she is by Kate Bush?

Agreed. Although I'm kind of a sucker for orchestral arrangements but we shall see.

I gotta say, this orchestral arrangements thing is a trend I like.

Considering how little I've liked her recent output, I'll happily take orchestral arrangements from her catalog. (Assuming there'll be stuff from her records I DO like, as opposed to 15 songs from the last 3 albums or something.)

An artist going back and re-recording old songs is generally not encouraging. Nor is doing orchestral arrangements for said songs. I shudder to recall that THIS exists

In my opinion, that was the last decent thing Metallica did.

Yeah, orchestral Little Earthquakes couldn't be that bad. Not new Tori Amos album bad.

She doesn't have the crazy dance moves (although might wanna check out the cornflake dance on youtube)

Nice to see Australia misses out on a tour again.

Here's the official video for the new version of Flavor.

I really like it (and always liked the original version of Flavor too). Having some good feelings about this new record today.

Tori Amos talks to Rolling Stone + Song Premieres of Gold Dust and Silent All These Years

Nice interview and the songs sound really pretty.

I'm pretty excited about hearing the rest of this album to be honest. Seems as though the tour is going to be pretty small and only a handful of shows.
